About the fellowship
The George T. and Margaret W. Romani Fellowship is awarded to an outstanding graduate student nominated by his or her academic department. Nominees must express a commitment to pursuing studies in some aspect of the Middle Ages or Renaissance, and must be studying under the mentorship of a faculty member who is an active member of CMRS. Newly admitted, continuing, or visiting students may be nominated for the award. The fellowship consists of a $20,000 stipend. Funding for student fees, tuition, and other expenses must be provided by the recipient’s academic department or other sources. Students selected to receive the Romani Fellowship may not hold another major fellowship (i.e., an award greater than $5,000) simultaneously.
The next CMRS Romani Fellowship will be offered for 2017- 18. To be considered for the award, students must be nominated by their academic department. There is no application for the student to submit for the Romani Scholarship.
The nomination deadline for the 2017-18 Romani Fellowship is January 31, 2017.
Nominations will be accepted for individuals in three categories:
- Graduate students newly admitted to UCLA
- Continuing UCLA graduate students
- Graduate students from other universities who have been invited to study at UCLA for a full academic year.
