MAA News – 2016 Schallek Awards

The Medieval Academy, in collaboration with the Richard III Society-American Branch, offers five graduate student awards (in addition to the full-year Fellowship awarded in the fall) in memory of William B. and Maryloo Spooner Schallek, funded by a generous gift to the Richard III Society from the Schallek family.
