This fellowship is for pursuing postdoctoral research at Villa I Tatti, The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies in Italy.
- Fellows are selected by an international and interdisciplinary committee that welcomes applications from Italian Renaissance scholars from all nations. The committee aims to assess the ability of candidates to contribute in a collegial way to the intellectual life of the Harvard Center. It pays special attention to the candidate’s curriculum vitae, the strength of the proposed project, and its potential to yield original results.
- At the time of application, scholars must hold a PhD, dottorato di ricerca, or an equivalent degree. They must be conversant in either English or Italian and able to understand both languages. They should be in the early stages of their career, having received a PhD between 2005-2014 and have a solid background in Italian Renaissance studies. (NB: The PhD certificate must bear a date between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2014, inclusive.)
