Kress Fellowships for Language Study in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish for Graduate Students in European Art History
Middlebury College is pleased to announce the Kress Fellowships for language study, made possible by a generous gift from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. Five fellowships are offered in summer 2013 for art history graduate students to attend the Middlebury summer Language Schools in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish.
These fellowships are intended for graduate students in art history with a proposed focus on European Art History. Preference will be given to graduate students who have recently been accepted or are currently enrolled in the requisite program at a Ph.D.-granting institution in the United States. In exceptional cases advanced undergraduates in Art History who are preparing for graduate study in the same field may also be considered.
Fellowships cover the comprehensive fee (tuition, room, and board) at the Middlebury summer Language Schools. They are merit-based and intended for exceptionally qualified individuals. Applicants need not be American citizens.
Kress Fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis. Financial aid forms are not required for these awards, but students interested in attending the Language Schools have the option to apply for Middlebury College financial aid, awarded on a demonstrated-need basis, through the office of Student Financial Services.
To be considered for a Kress Fellowship, please submit the following, POSTMARKED ON OR BEFORE APRIL 1, 2013:
1. A complete application for the Language School to which you are applying (including letters of recommendation and all other supporting materials). NB: If you have already submitted a complete application, you do not need to resubmit it.
2. Three copies of the Kress Fellowship coversheet.
3. Three copies of the one-page Kress Fellowship essay. (Essay question is included on coversheet linked above.)
