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.
Established in 1979, this fellowship provides auditor tuition and a portion of living expenses, for up to one term, for a graduate student in a PhD program at a U.S. or Canadian university to study at the École Nationale des Chartes in Paris (http://www.enc.sorbonne.fr/). 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 (http://www.newberry.org/center-renaissance-studies-consortium-members). 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.
Faculty and graduate students at member institutions of the Center for Renaissance Studies consortium (such as Northern Illinois University) may be eligible to apply for travel funding to attend this program (http://www.newberry.org/newberry-renaissance-consortium-grants).
