Wilson Research Fellowship, which carries a monetary amount of $1000.  Endowed by Wilson’s former students, this fellowship gives priority to projects reflecting the interests and work of their professor: the religious and intellectual life in the American colonies, the relationship between church and state, and religion in contemporary America.
