The Renaissance Society of America will award up to thirty-three individual fellowships, both residential and non-residential, to scholars working in the field of Renaissance studies (1300–1700) for the 2019 cycle. The purpose of the fellowships is to support members who need to travel to archives, libraries, and historic sites to conduct short-term research (usually 1–2 months), or for publication subventions. The stipend varies between $3,000 and $4,000 depending on the fellowship.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, fourteen fellowships are specifically for art historians including up to five Samuel H. Kress Mid-Career Research and Publication Fellowships and up to nine Samuel H. Kress Short-Term Research Library Fellowships.
Fellowships are open to applicants from any country and available for scholars of all levels, including doctoral candidates, though some are restricted to those already holding the PhD or senior scholars.
Details about the application process, eligibility, residential fellowships, and publication subventions are available on the RSA Fellowships webpage.
The deadline for the 2019 cycle is 15 September 2018.
