IAS/Samuel H. Kress Foundation International Conference Travel Grants

The Italian Art Society/Samuel H. Kress Foundation International Conference Travel Grant (IAS/Kress Travel) falls under the purview of the IAS President. In the past there was one application deadline for all conferences. This year there will be different deadlines for various conferences where IAS sponsors a session. Through the generosity of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the IAS offers IAS/Kress Travel grants to support transoceanic travel by IAS members of any nationality traveling to present papers in IAS-sponsored sessions at the CAA, RSA, the ICMA at Kalamazoo, the AIA, or the SCSC. Applicants must be members of the Italian Art Society at the time of application and receipt of the award, must have received their Ph.D. by the time of application, and must be presenting papers on a pre-modern topic in an IAS-sponsored session. The deadline for applications for 2017 has passed.
