Medieval Academy dissertation grants support advanced graduate students who are writing Ph.D. dissertations on medieval topics. The $2,000 grants help defray research expenses such as the cost of travel to research collections and the cost of photographs, photocopies, microfilms, and other research materials. The cost of books or equipment (e.g., computers) is not included.


  • Applicants must have received approval from their dissertation committee for their projects by the application date.
  • All graduate students whose primary research focuses on an aspect of medieval studies are eligible. However, if the topic deals with late-medieval Britain (ca. 1350 – 1500), apply for a Schallek Award.
  • Applicants must be members of the Medieval Academy as of 15 January of the year in which they apply.
