Funding: 2019–20 Shohet Scholars Grant Program, Research on the Ancient Mediterranean

dsc2596-1Application deadline: Jan 15, 2019

The Shohet Scholars Grant Program of the International Catacomb Society is now accepting applications to the Shohet Scholars cohort of 2019–20. Submission deadline is January 15, 2019 (11:59 p.m. EST).

This annual grant program funds research on the Ancient Mediterranean from the Hellenistic Era to the Early Middle Ages. Shohet Scholars may do their research in the fields of archeology, art history, classical studies, history, comparative religions, or related subjects. Of special interest are interdisciplinary projects that approach traditional topics from new perspectives.

One or more Shohet Scholars will be selected each year. The primary intent of the grant is to support significant, innovative research that can be completed and reported upon within and shortly after the award period. Grants may be made to seed innovative approaches and new ideas or to cover specific expenses or phases of a larger project under the direction of the applicant. At this time, awards in the range of $2,000 to $30,000 will be made. A complete history of past and present Shohet Scholars awards is available on the ICS webpage, www.catacombsociety.org.

Eligibility
Scholars of all institutional affiliations and independent scholars may apply for Shohet Scholar funding if they are individual or institutional members of the ICS at the time of the application submission deadline of January 15, 2019 and in possession of a doctoral degree or the equivalent.

Non-U.S. citizens may apply if a co-applicant is a legal permanent resident (i.e. already in possession of “green card” or Form I-551) or native or naturalized citizen of the U.S.A., meets all eligibility requirements, and has a genuinely collaborative and credited leadership role in the proposal. Co-applicants must submit as individuals all the necessary forms except for the research proposal, list of permissions, and budget proposal, which may be filed jointly.

Deadlines and Decisions
The application deadline for the 2018-2019 academic year is January 15, 2019. The award announcement for the 2019-2020 academic year will be made by May 1, 2019, for funding to be disbursed on 15 July 2019. Please note: starting in 2018, all funding is awarded directly to the USA-based awardee, for distribution among project co-applicants and collaborators. The ICS will no longer wire or transfer money to bank accounts outside of the USA.

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain: PhD Scholarships 2018

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain: PhD Scholarships 2018

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) is accepting applications for two PhD scholarships for the academic year 2018/19.

We are offering funding for:

  • 1 x full-time scholarship (3 years maximum) with the condition that the topic of study falls within British architectural history, however broadly conceived. Funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation
  • 1 x full (3 years maximum) or part time (6 years maximum) student, and we particularly encourage topics that extend beyond British architectural history and investigate other global regions

These scholarships are aimed at those who have already been accepted by a UK university department with a research proposal, and who are seeking to secure funding. Our funding follows the annual rate of maintenance set as the National Minimum Doctoral Stipend by Research Councils UK. We do not offer an award for university fees.

Applications must be received by midday on 7 May 2018. Full details about how to apply are available here

CANDIDATE PROFILE

The Society welcomes applications from students with developed research proposals approaching architectural history from a range of disciplinary backgrounds including history, art history, architecture, and geography, as well as multi- or trans-disciplinary approaches. You do not need to have studied architectural history formally before, nor do you need to be a member of the Society, but your project must relate to the history of the built environment, broadly conceived. There is no limitation on methodology; we welcome diversity of approach. Possible topics might encompass:

  • Histories of design
  • Histories of construction
  • Histories of planning
  • Histories of buildings in use
  • Histories of interiors and interior design
  • Histories of practice and professionalism
  • Heritage studies

The Society encourages applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds.
