Annually Villa I Tatti, The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies offers Wallace Fellowship for 4 or 6 months in length in Italy. Applicants of all nationalities are eligible to apply for this fellowship.
Wallace Fellowships are designed for scholars who explore the historiography and impact of the Italian Renaissance in the Modern Era (19th-21st centuries).
Villa I Tatti, The Harvard Center for Italian Renaissance Studies is a center for advanced research in the humanities located in Florence, Italy, and belongs to Harvard University. It also houses a library and an art collection, and it is the site of Italian and English gardens. Villa I Tatti is located on an estate of olive groves, vineyards, and gardens on the border of Florence, Fiesole, and Settignano.
The following criteria must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for the scholarship:
The stipend is USD 4,000 per month, plus a one-time supplement (maximum, USD 1,500) towards relocation expenses. When possible, a one-bedroom apartment will be set aside for the Fellow’s use, rent free, but with charges for utilities. If an apartment is not available, $1000 per month will be offered to help offset rental costs. In light of the residential nature of this fellowship, we actively discourage people from commuting and expect everyone to reside in the vicinity. The Fellowships are funded by a generous grant from The Lila Wallace – Reader’s Digest Fund.
