MAA-GSC New Horizons Graduate Student Research Grant
The Medieval Academy of America Graduate Student Committee is calling for applications for grants of up to $500 to support graduate student research projects that uniquely engage with the current research environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Even as medievalist graduate students have lost access to much of our primary research material because of restrictions on travel and access to collections, we have also been inspired to develop inventive solutions to continue conducting dynamic and innovative research. Proposed projects might creatively use the digital resources available when physical resources are not, or might consider how the middle ages illuminates our understanding of the current social, cultural, and economic environment. Applications will be evaluated on the originality of how the proposed project engages with the current environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as its potential to contribute to medieval studies. This is a special one-time grant program. Up to four will be awarded for outstanding applications selected by the MAA Graduate Student Committee.


Applicants must be a graduate student and a member of the Medieval Academy of America by 1 September of the year they apply.


Applications must be received by the Academy office by 1 September. Applications should include:

1) Project proposal of up to 750 words
2) Proposed budget
3) CV

Along with the completed application form, applicants must provide a letter of reference from the dissertation advisor. The letter of reference must be submitted to Executive Director Lisa Fagin Davis ( using a confidential eDelivery system such as Interfolio or emailed as a signed PDF on letterhead. The letter must be received by 1 September.
