The Newberry Library/Ecole Nationale des Chartres
Application deadline extended to: February 10, 2011
Each year since 1979, this fellowship has provided auditor tuition and a three-month stipend to partially cover living expenses for an American or Canadian graduate student in a Ph.D. program to study at the École Nationale des Chartes in Paris. The École des Chartes is the oldest institution in Europe specializing in the archival sciences, including paleography, codicology, bibliography, diplomatics, textual editing, and the history of the book. Preference is given to students attending member institutions of the Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium. It is strongly recommended that the recipient is in residence at the École during the fall semester.
Applications are especially encouraged from students in the early stages of preparing their dissertations.
See the application guidelines available at http://www.newberry.org/renaissance/general/felshps.html. In your Project Abstract and Project Description, provide specifics about your need for the training available at the École des Chartes and how it will contribute to your dissertation or future projects.
