Due to COVID-19 restricting travel and causing the cancellation of in-person conferences for spring 2021, no competition was held in 2020.
The Italian Art Society offers two grants of $500 each year that support travel for emerging scholars to one of the following:
- The College Art Association meeting
- The Renaissance Society of America meeting
- The International Congress for Medieval Studies
- Any conference where IAS is sponsoring a session
This competition is open to Master’s or Ph.D. students, or Ph.D. holders within ten years of the degree (pre-tenure, non-tenure-trackor 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 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.
