NEH Research Fellows at the Medici Project

One three-year humanities fellowship.

The Medici Archive Project is an American Research Institution that carries out scholarly activities in the National Archive in Florence, Italy (Archivio di Stato di Firenze). These activities include the creation of the first computerized access to the Archive of the Medici Grand Dukes of Tuscany (1537-1743). Part of MAP's mission is to train emerging scholars in the values and methods of archival research in the context of an ongoing Fellowship Program, giving them the opportunity to make such research an integral part of their scholarly careers. Funding is thus sought for two NEH Research Fellows who will come to MAP for three years each (from September 2006 through August 2009 and September 2007 through August 2010). In the course of their three years with MAP, Fellows spend 20 months collaborating with MAP's research team onsite in the Florentine National Archive and the remaining time (16 months) carrying out independent research on a proposed topic of their choice. After the conclusion of their fellowships, Project Alumnae pursue scholarly careers, bringing their enhanced knowledge and expertise to universities, museums and research institutions around the world.
