Through a generous bequest from Friedrich and Lieselotte Solmsen, the Institute for Research in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison offers five Solmsen Fellowships each year to scholars outside UW-Madison working in the humanities on European history and culture in the classical, medieval, and/or early modern periods before 1700. Projects on the relationship of pre-1700 Europe to other parts of the world are especially welcome.
Fellows are expected to be in residence throughout the academic year (except for short research trips, lectures, conferences, etc.) and may extend their residency through the following summer on a non-stipendary basis. Fellows are expected to present their work at an Institute seminar and participate in the weekly seminars. Applicants must be in possession of the doctorate at the time of application.
Applicants must be in possession of the doctorate at the time of application. For the 2018-2019 fellowship year, the award provides a stipend of $55,000, office space, support services, and access to all university facilities.
