Grants For Independent Research On
Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation
Deadline: December 15, 2010
The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation announces its 2011-2012 program of grants (predoctoral and postdoctoral) for
travel to and residence in Venice and the Veneto. Grants will be awarded for historical research specifically on Venice and
the former Venetian empire, and for study of contemporary Venetian society and culture. Disciplines of the humanities
and social sciences are eligible areas of study, including (but not limited to) archaeology, architecture, art, bibliography,
economics, history, history of science, law, literature, music, political science, religion, and theater.
Applicants must (i) be citizens or permanent residents of the United States, (ii) have experience in advanced research at
the graduate level or equivalent, and (iii) if graduate students, have fulfilled all doctoral requirements except completion of
the dissertation (but including acceptance of dissertation proposal) by December 15, 2010. Candidates for the British and
Commonwealth Program are urged to contact Professor Julian Gardner, 44, Foundry House, Eagle Works, Walton Well
Road, Oxford OX2 6AQ. Applications for the British and Commonwealth Program are due by May 15, 2011.
Applications will be entertained for grants up to a maximum of $19,900 for a full academic year. Grants for the maximum
amount are rarely awarded, and successful applicants are frequently awarded less than the amount requested. Funds are
granted primarily for research in Venice and the Veneto only, and for transportation to, from, and within the Veneto.
Scholars who have already received and accepted a Delmas grant for work in Venice and the Veneto are eligible to apply
for one-time grants of up to $3,000 (one month maximum), to work exclusively on Venetian materials in other European
libraries or museums. The proposed research must be related to the previous Delmas grant. Applicants may not submit
funding requests for both grants within the same year. Funds may also be made available for aid in the publication of
studies made possible by Delmas grants.
