The Paul Oskar Kristeller Lifetime Achievement Award

This award honors a lifetime of uncompromising devotion to the highest standard of scholarship accompanied by exceptional achievement in Renaissance studies. It is intended for a scholar whose accomplishments call to mind the example of Paul Oskar Kristeller. The award is designed to honor a scholar for lifetime achievement rather than an individual work or works of scholarship. The recipient must be a living scholar who is, or has been, a member of the Renaissance Society of America.

The selection will be made at the October meeting of the Executive Board and announced at the following annual meeting. Nominations are rolling and can be submitted at any time, but to be considered in October they should arrive by 31 August. The pool of nominees will be held over from year to year, so neither repeat nominations nor campaigns are necessary. Since the candidates will be of such distinction that they will be known to a wide swath of the membership, only a short letter of nomination is required, at most one page.

Nominations for the award to be given in March 2017 (Chicago) closed on 1 September 2016. Thank you to all who submitted a nomination.
