The institute provides grants for a minimum stay of one month and a maximum stay of six months to enable students and fellows to conduct research in Florence in art history and related disciplines. Students and fellows who do not specialize in the liberal arts also qualify, providing their study can demonstrably benefit from a study abroad programme in Florence.
Students staying in Florence within the framework of the Erasmus or Socrates programme do not qualify for a grant from institute.
Foreign postdoctoral researchers or Ph.D. students
For the academic year 2017/2018 the Institute offers a limited number of fellowships for postdoctoral researchers or Ph.D. students. These fellowships consist of € 350,00 to cover travel expenses to the Institute (€ 700,00 for candidates from non-Euopean universities) plus free accommodation at the Institute and a place to study in the library for a maximum period of 3 months. Other solutions are possible depending on the necessity of a stay in Florence.
The topic of the project for which a fellowship is asked should fall within the three main research areas promoted by the Institute. Fellows are supposed to devote themselves full time to their research project and to have no other obligations during the duration of the fellowship. They are expected to give a talk at the end of their stay to present their findings.
Candidates should send their applications before 1 May 2017 to:
