École Nationale des Chartes Fellowship
The application deadline for the 2013-14 fellowship will be December 1, 2012.
This fellowship, which has existed since 1979, provides auditor tuition and a portion of living expenses for an American or Canadian graduate student who has advanced to PhD candidacy to study at the École Nationale des Chartes in Paris. The École 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 be in residence at the École during the fall semester. Applications are especially encouraged from students who are in the research stage of their dissertation work.
See Long-Term Fellowships for application forms and instructions. The Project Abstract and Project Description should provide specific reference to the applicant’s need for the training available at the École and how it will contribute to the dissertation or future projects. Applicants for this fellowship may disregard the question in the application instructions about use of Newberry materials.
