ACMRS Graduate Research and Travel Awards

The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS) offers two research fellowships of $500 for graduate student affiliates at Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Arizona. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-2021 graduate student fellowships may be used for online conference registration or the purchase of research materials. One fellowship will be reserved for a student focusing on medieval studies and one for a student focusing on early modern studies.

Funds can be used to reimburse travel and research during the fall semester, or can be used towards travel in research in the spring semester. 

The application consists of:

  • a one-page description/breakdown of how you plan to use the award (conference registration, materials to be purchased, etc.), and its significance for your professional development and/or research.
  • a current CV.

Applications are due February 15, 2022.
