Medieval Academy Dissertation Grants

To commemorate its seventy-fifth anniversary, The Medieval Academy established a new program of dissertation grants named in honor of five members who over many years contributed to the development of The Academy: Hope Emily Allen, Helen Maud Cam, Grace Frank, Etienne Gilson, and E. K. Rand. Their careers as teachers and scholars reflect the organization's wide-ranging disciplinary interests.


Since the program began, an additional four grants have been funded. These are in honor of John Boswell (2013), Frederic C. Lane (2002), Robert and Janet Lumiansky (2012) and Charles T. Wood (2003).
