A limited number of stipends are available for graduate students and particularly promising undergraduate students participating in summer courses in medieval languages or manuscript studies. The stipend will be paid directly to the student and must be used to offset a portion of the tuition cost. The awards are contingent on acceptance into the program. Applicants must be members of the Medieval Academy in good standing with at least one year of graduate school remaining and must demonstrate both the importance of the summer course to their program of study and their home institution’s inability to offer analogous coursework.

There will be between four and eight awards yearly, depending upon the number of worthy applicants and the cost of the summer programs.

Eligible programs include (but are not limited to):

  • Aarhus Universitet (medieval Latin or Old Norse)
  • Catholic University of America, Center for Medieval and Byzantine Studies and Department of Greek and Latin (Latin, Greek, Paleography)
  • Dumbarton Oaks (Greek)
  • Fordham University (Latin, Spanish, French)
  • The Latin/Greek Institute (LGI) at the CUNY Graduate Center/Brooklyn College
