IAS TRAVEL GRANT FOR EMERGING SCHOLARS
The Italian Art Society is pleased to announce the IAS Conference Travel Grant for Emerging Scholars. Two grants of $500.00 will be available each year to subsidize travel for emerging scholars to present a paper at any conference where the IAS is sponsoring a session on Italian art or architecture from prehistory to the present. The competition is open to Master’s or Ph.D. students or Ph.D. holders within six years of the degree (pre-tenture, non-tenure track, or independent scholars). Applicants for IAS grants must be IAS members at the time of application and upon receipt and use of the award. Members who have received an IAS award in the past two years are not eligible to apply. IAS officers and committee members are not eligible to apply. See the flyer with further details here. The deadline is 1 November 2017.

IAS CONFERENCE TRAVEL GRANT FOR MODERN TOPICS
The IAS is pleased to announce our third year of competition for the IAS Conference Grant for Modern Topics. A minimum of $500 will be provided to subsidize transoceanic travel to present in an IAS-sponsored session on the art or architecture of Italy from the early nineteenth century to the present, at any conference in 2018. This grant has been established to fill the gap caused by the IAS/Kress International Travel Grant’s restriction to fund topics up to the early nineteenth century only.

To be eligible, applicants must be U.S. or international scholars already holding the Ph.D. (or equivalent terminal degree) and must be undertaking transoceanic travel to present at the conference. Applicants for IAS grants must be IAS members at the time of application and upon receipt and use of the award. Members who have received an IAS award in the past two years are not eligible to apply. IAS officers and committee members are not eligible to apply. Please send proposals to Awards Committee Chair Christian Kleinbub at awards@italianartsociety.org. For complete instructions click here. The deadline is 8 October 2017.
