For Graduate Students

Renaissance Studies Consortium

The Center for Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library

UW-Madison is a member of The Renaissance Studies Consortium at the Newberry Library in Chicago. Funds are available for faculty and students to participate in Center for Renaissance Studies programs, to conduct research on medieval, Renaissance, or early modern topics, and/or to organize class visits to the library. The Newberry has excellent resources in the early history of the book, including manuscripts and incunabula as well as a first-rate collection of secondary materials in areas of interest to medieval and Renaissance scholars. The Consortium collaborates with the Folger Institute in Washington, D.C., and our membership makes funds available for travel to the Folger as well.

UW-Madison graduate students are eligible for several research grants from the Newberry including Newberry Library-Ecole des Chartes Exchange Fellowship. For more information, see the Newberry fellowship home page.

We encourage faculty and graduate students to make the most of our Consortium membership. If you are interested in going to the Newberry or the Folger, please contact us for further information about funding opportunities.
