Thanks to the generous gift from Joan A. McClure and Michael L. Schler, in honor of Michael’s late mother Eva Schler, the Medici Archive Project is offering four short-term fellowships for graduate and pre-doctoral students of any nationality working on any field related to early modern Italy (preferably with a specific emphasis on Tuscany or Medici history).
This scholarly residence will be of considerable benefit in helping students to gain the necessary skills, experience and confidence to continue independent academic research in their academic specialization. While undertaking research on primary sources in Florence, fellows will benefit from the supervision of the MAP Staff as well as from academics drawn from a variety of disciplines, who are experts in archival research, paleography, and digital humanities.
Each fellowship will last for an uninterrupted period of three months, taking place at any point between 1 September 2022 and 23 December 2022 (FALL SEMESTER) and 1 January 2023 and 20 July 2023 (SPRING SEMESTER).
There is no application form for this fellowship. Instead, suitable candidates are invited to send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, the following documents in a collated PDF:
- A cover letter in English, stating the proposed dates which the fellow will be in residence at MAP’s headquarters at Palazzo Alberti.
- A short essay (no more than two pages) on how the candidate’s topic will benefit from archival research.
- A curriculum vitae.
- The name and email address of a scholar in the field, preferably the candidate’s supervisor, who can comment on the applicant’s qualifications and the merits of the research proposal (please do not include letters of recommendation with the application).
The fellowships are open to candidates from any nationalities.
The fellowship stipend is US $6,000.
