The Medieval Academy, in collaboration with the Richard III Society-American Branch, offers a full-year fellowship and five graduate student awards in memory of William B. and Maryloo Spooner Schallek. The fellowship and awards are supported by a generous gift to the Richard III Society from William B. and Maryloo Spooner Schallek.
The Schallek Fellowship provides a one-year grant of $30,000 to support Ph.D. dissertation research in any relevant discipline dealing with late-medieval Britain (ca. 1350-1500). The annual application deadline is 15 October.
The Schallek awards support graduate students conducting doctoral research in any relevant discipline dealing with late-medieval Britain (ca. 1350-1500). The $2,000 awards help defray research expenses such as the cost of travel to research collections and the cost of photographs, photocopies, microfilms, and other research materials. The cost of books or equipment (e.g., computers) is not included. The annual application deadline is 15 February.
Applicants to both Schallek programs must be members of the Medieval Academy. Graduate students who are members of the Medieval Academy and who seek support to research and write Ph.D. dissertations on topics related to medieval Britain before 1350 or on any other medieval topic should apply to the Medieval Academy Dissertation Grant program.
