ACMRS Short Term Residencies
The annual ACMRS Short-Term Residency will enable scholars who have earned a PhD in a pre-modern field to pursue their research for a period of four to six weeks. The residency is designed to allow scholars to focus on finishing projects for publication. The Director of ACMRS and senior members of ACMRS’ in-house press can provide publishing advice and mentoring. Each resident will present their work in a public lecture, showcasing their scholarship. Opportunities for graduate student mentorship are also available.
A new model
In line with ACMRS’ mission, the ACMRS Short-Term Residencies are designed to be as inclusive as possible and allow maximum flexibility. As such, the residencies may be held for a period of four to six weeks; a portion of the residency may be conducted remotely; or the residency may be divided into shorter segments over the course of the award year. Each residency carries a stipend of $7,500.
Candidates must have earned the doctoral degree in a pre-modern field by the time of application. Scholars of color and members of groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in the academy are particularly encouraged to apply.
We will begin accepting applications for the 2021-22 academic year in the fall of 2020.
Please submit a project description of no more than 1,000 words, outlining the research that will be undertaken during the period of residency; a curriculum vitae; and 2 letters of recommendation. Please indicate your preferred residency period and how you wish to structure the tenure of the award in your cover letter. This year’s residencies should be held between July 2021 and June 2022.
