Thanks to the continued support of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, The Medici Archive Project is offering two fellowships for graduate and pre-doctoral students to undertake specialized archival research on-site at the Archivio di Stato as well as other archival collections housed in Florence and across Tuscany.

These fellowships are especially aimed to provide graduate students in art and architectural history with the opportunity to examine original source materials, receive scholarly guidance from MAP Staff, present their findings at MAP-sponsored conferences and workshops, and enroll in MAP's Paleography and Archival Studies Seminar.

Both fellowships must take place within a period of no less than three months from 23 August 2021 to 23 December 2021.

The stipend is USD 8,000. Fellows will be responsible for their travel and accommodations in Florence.

Eligible candidates must either have American citizenship or be enrolled in graduate programs at universities in the United States.
