In 2010, after careful planning, the Jefferson Scholars Foundation completed construction of its headquarters located at 112 Clarke Court in Charlottesville.  Designed by the award-winning architectural firm of VMDO, the 32,700 square foot facility houses the Foundation’s administration offices, a reception hall, and the Jefferson Fellows Center, the academic center of the Foundation.

The complex has the LEED Gold designation with sustainable features including geothermal wells and ground-source heat pumps, low-impact bio-retention swales, high performance windows, and rain harvesting devices.

Throughout the year a variety of academic and intellectual programming occurs at the Foundation.  The Fellows Center hosts lectures, academic conferences, film screenings, and provides dedicated office space for recipients of Jefferson Fellowships.
