Scholarship Description

The Schallek Fellowship is funded by a gift to the Richard III Society-American Branch, from William B. and Maryloo Spooner Schallek. The fellowship supports an advanced graduate student who is writing a Ph.D. dissertation in any relevant discipline dealing with late-medieval Britain (ca. 1350-1500). The $30,000 fellowship helps defray research and living expenses for the equivalent of an academic year of study. The fellowship recipient must devote full time to the dissertation project and may not hold any job or teaching position or work on another project during the term of the fellowship. Applicants must be graduate students whose dissertation proposals have been approved by their dissertation committees. They must be members of the Medieval Academy as of 15 September of the year in which they apply. A PDF file that combines your dissertation proposal and a two-page summary of your plans including: the part of your dissertation research/writing you expect to accomplish under the fellowship; where and when you will travel–if necessary–during the tenure of the fellowship; and why you need the Schallek fellowship to complete the dissertation successfully. Recommendations may be mailed if necessary to Schallek Fellowship Medieval Academy 6 Beacon St., Suite 500, Boston, MA 02108.
