ZENO KARL SCHINDLER/CLAUDIO LEONARDI FELLOWSHIP FOR MEDIEVAL LATIN STUDIES
The Claudio Leonardi Fellowship of the Zeno Karl Schindler Foundation for Medieval Latin Studies has been established to support scholarship in Medieval Latin Studies – in particular, research by young scholars – with a grant-in-aid in honor of Claudio Leonardi (1926-2010), founder and first President of the Società Internazionale per lo Studio del Medioevo Latino (S.I.S.M.E.L.).
The grant will allow one scholar (doctoral at the final stage of the thesis or early post-doctoral) to spend a period of three to six months abroad pursuing research in his/her chosen field with a monthly stipend of 2,500 Swiss francs. In addition, the recipient may make use of an additional subsidy of 3,000 Swiss francs toward the cost of publication of his/her doctoral thesis or post-doctoral research on condition that the print publication indicate foundation support («published with the support of the Zeno Karl Schindler Foundation»)
The Application should include:
- a curriculum vitae and a list of publications
- the description of the research project
- a scientific justification of the sojourn abroad
- for which duration the fellowship is needed (3 or 6 months)
The Application may be written in English, French, German or Italian.
Applications should be submitted by September 15, 2018, via email to:
Prof. Jean-Yves Tilliette, Langue et littérature latines médiévales, Université de Genève
Applications will then be submitted to the Governing Board of the Zeno Karl Schindler Foundation for evaluation during its fall meeting. The final decision will be communicated until the end of 2017.
THE FOUNDATION WILL NOT GIVE ANY INFORMATION, JUSTIFICATION NOR REASON FOR THE DECISIONS CONCERNING THE ACCEPTANCE OR NOT OF AN APPLICATION.
Please consider that no reply will be given to such requests.
The Foundation does not deal with assistance to request a student VISA, finding accommodation, provide insurance or tax advice.
During the annual S.I.S.M.E.L. General Assembly – which will be held in 2018, on March 24 – the winner will be given the opportunity to present a fifteen minute lecture on his/her research project.
