Medieval Graduate Student Award

The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS) offers a travel award for the outstanding paper written by an ASU, NAU, or UA graduate student working in any aspect of Medieval or early Renaissance Studies. This award will cover the expenses (up to $500) of the student to attend the International Congress on Medieval Studies held every year in May at Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo.

The Congress is sponsored by the Medieval Institute and is an important international meeting of scholars engaged in the study of Medieval and early Renaissance culture. The quality of the conference has attracted numerous international participants. The Program Committee also welcomes the participation of graduate students and junior scholars, making this conference one of the best forums for those beginning their scholarly careers. In support of the ACMRS graduate research and travel award, the Medieval Institute will guarantee a place in an appropriate session on the program for the graduate student selected and will waive all fees for registration, meals, and housing.

Papers may be submitted on any subject suitable to the Kalamazoo program. A copy of a prior program may be consulted at the ACMRS offices, Lattie F. Coor Hall, Room 4432 (480-965-8097). For the current program and information on the Congress, visit the Medieval Institute website. Applications will consist of a paper (15 pages maximum) and a letter of support from a faculty mentor. The winning paper will be included in the ACMRS Spring lecture series.
