2021 Research Fellowships + Fellowships Webinar

New York, NYThe Renaissance Society of America's 2021 Research Fellowships competition is now open. For the 2021 cycle, the RSA will award fellowships of $2,000 to scholars working in the field of Renaissance studies (1300–1700). Fellowships are made possible by donations and bequests from RSA members and by grants from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
We recognize that travel to archives and libraries will be difficult in the foreseeable future. To that end, we are defining a “short-term research fellowship” more broadly in 2021—to include expenses related to research that are not explicitly travel. These expenses might include (but are not limited to) copy-editing, access fees to online archives, digital images and permissions, and publication subventions. The deadline to apply is 15 September 2020.
A link to the application site and details about the application process, eligibility, residential fellowship (where available in the current cycle), non-residential fellowships, and publication subventions are available on the RSA Fellowships webpage. To submit an application, you must be a current RSA member. If you are not a current member, please renew your membership before applying for a fellowship.
Model proposals and statistics about previous fellowship cycles available on the RSA Fellowships webpage provide additional information about the application process.
Current and past Fellowships Chairs Surekha Davies and Christopher Carlsmith will host a webinar on the RSA Fellowships on Thursday, August 20th at 12pm EDT. In the 60-minute session they’ll explain changes to the RSA’s fellowships program, share what the best proposals do, and answer questions from participants. A recording of the session will be available one week after the webinar.
During the past five years, the RSA has awarded fellowships to more than 100 scholars at all career stages, working on topics from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century in many different fields. A list of previous award winners is posted on the RSA website.
