GRADUATE STUDENTS AND EMERGING SCHOLARS
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.

Congratulations to our 2013 Travel Grant recipients:
Joanne Anderson, Visiting Lecturer, University of Warwick, “Coloring the Magdalene in the Early Renaissance,” 59th Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, 2013, 4-6 April, San Diego.

SCHOLARS TRAVELING FROM ABROAD
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. If you have submitted a proposal and have not received confirmation of receipt, please contact the IAS President.
Congratulations to our 2013 IAS/Kress Travel Grant recipient:
Dr. Rebekah Perry, “The Medieval Wooden Deposition Groups of Central Italy: Problems of Iconography and Ritual Function,” American Association for Italian Studies, 2013, April, Eugene, Oregon.
