Solmsen Fellowships

Through a generous bequest from Friedrich and Lieselotte Solmsen, the Institute for Research in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison offers five Solmsen Fellowships each year to scholars outside UW-Madison working in the humanities on European history and culture in the classical, medieval, and/or early modern periods before 1700. Projects on the relationship of pre-1700 Europe to other parts of the world are especially welcome.

Fellows are expected to be in residence throughout the academic year (except for short research trips, lectures, conferences, etc.) and may extend their residency through the following summer on a non-stipendary basis. Fellows are expected to present their work at an Institute seminar and participate in the weekly seminars. Applicants must be in possession of the doctorate at the time of application. For the 2018-2019 fellowship year, the award provides a stipend of $55,000, office space, support services, and access to all university facilities.

The Institute for Research in the Humanities will offer 5-6 Solmsen Fellowships to be awarded to a scholar from outside the University of Wisconsin-Madison for 2017-2018. Through a generous bequest from Friedrich and Lieselotte Solmsen, the Solmsen Fellowships sponsor scholars working in the humanities on European history and culture in the classical, medieval, and/or early modern periods before 1700. Projects on the relationship of pre-1700 Europe to other parts of the world and/or on the uncertain pre-1700 borderlands of Europe and/or on the pre-1700 meanings of “Europe” are especially welcome; 1-3 Solmsen Fellowships will be available for such projects.

Solmsen Fellows are expected to be in residence throughout the academic year (except for short research trips, lectures, conferences, etc.) and may extend their residency through the following summer on a non-stipendary basis. The award provides a stipend of $55,000, office space, support services, and access to all university facilities. Solmsen Fellows are also expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Institute by attending the weekly Monday afternoon seminars (3:00-5:00p.m.) and presenting their work at a seminar. Monday seminars are followed by an informal Tuesday lunch discussion (noon-1:15p.m.) based on the seminar for those who are interested in further discussion of the Monday presentation. Fellows are also encouraged to attend other Institute events, as time and interest permit.
