The Claudio Leonardi Fellowship of the Zeno Karl Schindler Foundation for Medieval Latin Studies has been established to support scholarship in Medieval Latin Studies – in particular, research by young scholars – with a grant-in-aid in honor of Claudio Leonardi (1926-2010), founder and first president of the Società Internazionale per lo Studio del Medioevo Latino (S.I.S.M.E.L.).
The grant will allow one scholar (doctoral or postdoctoral candidate) to spend a period of three to six months abroad pursuing research in his/her chosen field with a monthly stipend of 2,000 Swiss francs. In addition, the recipient may make use of an additional subsidy of 3,000 Swiss francs toward the cost of publication of his/her doctoral thesis or postdoctoral research on condition that the printed publication indicates the foundation support (“published with the support of the Zeno Karl Schindler-Stiftung.“)
Applications should be submitted (with curriculum vitae, description of the research project, and reason for research abroad) by September 2nd, 2013, via email to: Prof. Jean-Yves Tilliette, Langue et littérature latines médiévales, Université de Genève (Jean-Yves.Tilliette@unige.ch). Applications will then be submitted to the Governing Board of the Zeno Karl Schindler Foundation for evaluation during its fall meeting.
The fellowship assignment will be made during the annual S.I.S.M.E.L. General Meeting which will be held on April 12th, 2014. The winner will then be given the opportunity to present a fifteen-minute lecture on his/her research or on particular aspects of his/her doctoral or postdoctoral research.
