The Medieval Institute, founded in 1946, promotes research and teaching on the multiple cultures, languages, and religions of the medieval period and their interrelations. Our institute fosters an interdisciplinary intellectual community through advancing scholarship in our world-class medieval library collection; hosting research visitors from this country and abroad; sponsoring lectures, conferences, and other academic events; and serving as a premier center in the United States for training students in medieval studies. We offer both an undergraduate major and a Ph.D. program in medieval studies; students can work with over eighty faculty medievalists from a dozen different departments around the university. The Medieval Institute coordinates and facilitates the activities of the largest contingent of medievalists of any North American university.

Applications must normally be made by the end of the Fall semester in the student’s second year in the Ph.D. program.

For AY 2020/21, applications are due Tuesday, November 26th by 5 p.m.

Applicants must submit a single document (.pdf, .doc, .docx, or .odt) containing:

1) a two-page proposal that (a) outlines the program of studies they intend to follow, (b) explains how that course of studies will add significant interdisciplinary breadth to their work and prepare them for their dissertation research. and (c) makes clear how that added breadth will make it possible to contribute decisively to crucial, contemporary scholarly discussions. 

2) a letter from the applicant's doctoral supervisor expressing their approval of the plan and clarifying how the third year of courses is in the best interests of the student.

Inquiries about this Fellowship should be addressed to the DGS of the Medieval Institute, CJ Jones.
