The Institute for Research in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is offering four Solmsen Fellowships for the academic year 2024-2025 to art historians (including curators) and other humanities scholars from outside the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Through a generous bequest from Friedrich and Lieselotte Solmsen, the Solmsen Fellowships sponsor scholars working in the humanities on European history, literature, philosophy, politics, religion, art and culture in the classical, medieval, and/or early modern periods before 1700. Projects on the relationship of pre-1700 Europe to other parts of the world are also welcome. The Solmsen Fellowship does not typically support editions or translations.
Solmsen Fellows are expected to be in residence at the IRH throughout the academic year (except for short research trips, lectures, conferences, etc.) and may extend this residency through the following summer on a non-stipendiary basis. However, the fellowship may not be deferred for any reason. The award provides a stipend of $60,000, office space, support services, and access to university facilities.
Applicants must be in possession of their doctorate at the time of application. The deadline for the 2024-2025 Solmsen Fellowship competition is 26 October 2023. The final notification of the awards will be sent in Late February or Early March 2024.
Please see the website of the University of Wisconsin-Madison for more information and to apply.
