Kress Fellowships for Language Study in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish
for Graduate Students in European Art History and Art Conservation
Middlebury College is pleased to announce the continuation of the Kress Fellowships for language study, made possible by a generous gift from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. Five fellowships are offered in summer 2018 for art history graduate students and graduate students in art conservation to attend the Middlebury summer Language Schools in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, or Spanish.
These fellowships are intended for graduate students in art history with a proposed focus on European Art History or graduate students studying art conservation. Preference will be given to graduate students who have recently been accepted or are currently enrolled in the corresponding 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. Travel expenses and books are not included. Fellowships are merit-based and intended for exceptionally qualified individuals. Applicants need not be American citizens.
Kress Fellowships will be awarded on a highly 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.
