The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation promotes the advancement and perpetuation of humanistic inquiry and artistic creativity by encouraging excellence in scholarship and in the performing arts and by supporting research libraries and other institutions that transmit our cultural heritage.
In support of its mission, the foundation is inviting applications for its U.S. Venetian Research Program. Through the program, travel grants are awarded to individual scholars to support historical research on Venice and the former Venetian empire and/or for the study of contemporary Venetian society and culture. Disciplines of the humanities and social sciences are eligible areas of study, including but not limited to archaeology, architecture, art, bibliography, economics, history, history of science, law, literature, music, political science, religion, and theater.
Through the program, grants of up to $20,000 over a full academic year will be awarded. Funds may be used for travel to and residence in Venice and the former Venetian empire, transportation within the Veneto, and specific research expenses.
To be eligible, applicants must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States and have experience in advanced research at the graduate level or equivalent. PhD students must have completed all course work at the time of application.
