The Medici Archive Project is offering several new short-term fellowships for graduate students in art and architectural history to conduct archival research in Florence.
I previously served as a NEH Fellow with the Medici Archive Project and had an amazing experience doing collaborative research in the Archivio di Stato di Firenze with the Medici Archive Project.
Here is the announcement from the Medici Archive Project:
Thanks to the continued support of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, The Medici Archive Project is offering two fellowships for graduate and pre-doctoral students to undertake specialized archival research on-site at the Archivio di Stato as well as other archival collections housed in Florence and across Tuscany.
These fellowships are especially aimed to provide graduate students in art and architectural history with the opportunity to examine original source materials, receive scholarly guidance from MAP Staff, present their findings at MAP-sponsored conferences and workshops, and enroll in MAP’s Paleography and Archival Studies Seminar.
Both fellowships must take place within a period of no less than three months from 15 May 2022 to 23 December 2022.
The stipend is USD 8,000. Fellows will be responsible for their travel and accommodations in Florence.
Eligible candidates must either have American citizenship or be enrolled in graduate programs at universities in the United States.
There is no application form for this fellowship.
Instead, suitable candidates are invited to send via email to email@example.com, the following documents in a single PDF by 2 APRIL 2022:
1) A cover letter.
2) A short essay (no more than two pages) on how the candidate’s topic will benefit from archival research.
3) A curriculum vitae.
4) 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).
To apply for these fellowships, the following material should be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not include supplementary material (publications, papers, syllabi, etc.).
All materials must be submitted in English.
