Open calls for fellowships are announced on our website. Stipends and timings vary, so please read carefully the individual fellowship announcement.
In general, the Medici Archive Project offers five types of fellowship:
Samuel H. Kress Graduate Fellowships in Art and Architectural History
Candidates must be enrolled in graduate programs at United States universities, and working on dissertation topics that treat any aspect of Italian Renaissance or Baroque art history; Tuscan art history topics will be given preference.
Eva Schler Fellowship
Open to 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). Special preference will be given to scholars working on any topic related to early modern Jewish women.
Samuel Freeman Charitable Trust
Research grants are offered without restriction to predoctoral and postdoctoral researchers for a duration of three months.
Non-stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships
PhD candidates with a previous association with MAP – either as an alumnus of MAP’s education courses or a former fellow – may request a Junior Research Fellowship with MAP. No stipend is offered, but JRFs are given whenever possible desk space in the MAP office, support with their research, and participation in MAP’s activities. In exchange, JRFs are asked to devote some hours each week to support MAP’s various initiatives.
Third Party Fellowships
MAP is happy to support applications for third party fellowships (for example, Fulbright Fellowships). Preparation for these application should be made well
in advance and discussions should go through the Assistant Director, Carlotta Paltrinieri (firstname.lastname@example.org).
