The Renaissance Society of America awards a number of competitive fellowships to members each year supporting individual research projects and publications that advance scholarly knowledge about the period 1300–1700. Fellowships are made possible by donations and bequests from RSA members, by grants from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, and support from the Virginia Fox Stern Center.
All applicants must be current RSA members. If an applicant is not a current member, they should either join the RSA or renew their membership before applying for a fellowship. Members can live or work in any country. The research can be conducted in any country.
