The Graduate Student Committee of the Medieval Academy of America is pleased to announce a new, one-time grant program: the MAA-GSC New Horizons Graduate Student Research Grant.
The MAA-GSC is calling for applications for grants of up to $500 to support graduate student research projects that uniquely engage with the current research environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Even as medievalist graduate students have lost access to much of our primary research material because of restrictions on travel and access to collections, we have also been inspired to develop inventive solutions to continue conducting dynamic and innovative research. Proposed projects might creatively use the digital resources available when physical resources are not, or might consider how the middle ages illuminates our understanding of the current social, cultural, and economic environment. Applications will be evaluated on the originality of how the proposed project engages with the current environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as its potential to contribute to medieval studies. This is a special one-time grant program. Up to four will be awarded for outstanding applications selected by the MAA Graduate Student Committee.
The application deadline is September 1. Applicants must be members of the Medieval Academy of America. Click here for more information:
