Appel à candidature : « Travel Grants – Italian Art Society »

The Italian Art Society provides a number of travel grants for graduate students and senoir scholars to present papers at important conferences (such as CAA, ICMS/Kalamazoo, and RSA). Two categories exist, with different deadlines and criteria:

Through the generosity of the Kress Foundation, the IAS provides support to US or foreign scholars traveling internationally to present papers in IAS-sponsored sessions at the College Art Association, the International Congress on Medieval Studies, the Renaissance Society of America, and the Society of Architectural Historians, or any other conference where the IAS is sponsoring a session. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. by the time of application and must be presenting their papers in an IAS-sponsored session. Questions and completed applications should be directed to Cathleen Fleck (, President of the Italian Art Society, by October 7 for travel grants to be used during the following year. Please click here to view the IAS/Kress Travel Grant Flyer for instructions.

The IAS is pleased to provide support to graduate students at any level (MA, MPhil, or PhD) and scholars within 10 years of receipt of the PhD who do not hold a tenured position. Awards support the presentation of papers addressing some aspect of the art and architecture of the Italian peninsula and related cultural spheres.  Grants may be used for any travel expenses incurred in conjunction with presentations at a conference where the IAS is sponsoring a session (at our affiliate conferences: CAA, ICMS/Kalamazoo, RSA, and SAH; or at any other conference where the IAS has a session), though the paper does not need to be presented in an IAS-sponsored session. US and international candidates are encouraged to apply.

The annual deadline for applications is November 1. Please contact Janis Elliott (, chair of the Awards Committee, with any questions. Click here to view the Travel Grant Flyer, with instructions on how to apply.
