Five Kress Fellowships to support research and/or publications in Medieval Art for 2014
Application deadline: 31 August 2014.

kress_logoAvailable to ICMA members working on their first book, the $3,000 fellowships support research leading to a publication on medieval art and, for authors with publication contracts in hand, monies to defray specific costs. Both awards support travel or publication costs, including photographs, image permissions, copyediting, etc. Research fellowship applications are restricted to those ICMA members who have been awarded a Ph.D. by a US institution, or members who have been awarded a Ph.D. by a non-US institution within the last ten years and currently hold a continuing position in a US college, university, or museum. Fellowships for those with publication contracts in hand are for first books only, but there are no restrictions as to when the Ph.D. was received. Both grants require the applicants to have received their Ph.D. from an American University or to be currently employed at an American institution.

Submissions should include a full c.v. along with a cover letter (no more than three pages) giving a detailed outline of the proposed project. Completed manuscripts are particularly welcome and should be submitted electronically whenever possible. A full budget is also needed, along with a copy of the publication contract where such is in place.

Online electronic applications are preferred and can be submitted electronically through the ICMA website. Application deadline August 31, 2014.

Kress Language Fellowships for Art History Students, Middlebury College


Kress Language Fellowships for Art History Students, Middlebury College, Vermont USA

June 20 – August 16, 2014

Application deadline: Apr 1, 2014

Middlebury College is pleased to announce the Kress Fellowships for  language study, made possible by a generous gift from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. Five fellowships are available for art history graduate students to attend the Middlebury summer Language Schools, in  French, German, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish during the summer of 2014.

These fellowships are intended for graduate students in art history with a proposed focus on European art history. Preference will be given to graduate students who have recently been accepted or are currently enrolled in the requisite program at a Ph.D.-granting institution in the United States. In exceptional cases advanced undergraduates in art history who are preparing for graduate study in the same field may also be considered.

Fellowships cover the comprehensive fee (tuition, room, and board) at  the Middlebury summer Language Schools. They are merit-based and intended for exceptionally qualified individuals.
