The Italian Art Society offers two grants of $500 each year that support travel for emerging scholars to any conference at which the IAS is sponsoring a session.
This competition is open to M.A. or Ph.D. students, or Ph.D. holders within ten years of the degree (pre-tenure, non-tenure-track, or independent scholars). Applicants must be presenting a paper about the art or architecture of Italy from the prehistoric to the present at one of these conferences, but not necessarily in an IAS-sponsored session.
Recipients must be members of the IAS at the time of application and upon receipt of the award, and may not have received an IAS award in the previous two years. IAS officers and committee members are not eligible to apply.
2022 WINNERS OF THE IAS CONFERENCE TRAVEL GRANTS FOR EMERGING SCHOLARS:
Lorenzo Vigotti, “Female Actors and Gendered Spaces Inside the Florentine Home in Late Trecento”
Emily Wood, “‘She Will Provide the Rest’: Philip II, Empire, and the Promise of New World Silver”
CURRENT CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
The 2022 cycle of travel grants has closed. The next cycle of travel grants will open in fall 2022.
