Funding Opportunities through Medieval Studies

The Medieval Studies Institute offers financial assistance for graduate students studying at Indiana.

  • The C. Clifford Flanigan Fund
  • This Fund was established in honor of Clifford Flanigan (1941-1993), Professor of Comparative Literature and a founding member of the Medieval Studies Institute. In memory of his commitment to facilitating opportunities for graduate students, the fund provides travel assistance for graduate students studying the Middle Ages to attend conferences. To apply for funds, email the Institute.

  • The Andrea McRobbie Award
  • This award is presented by the McRobbie family and the Medieval Studies Institute in memory of Andrea McRobbie’s interest in medieval studies. The mission of the award is to support an advanced graduate student engaged in “scholarship in medieval history, specifically some aspect of its social history or some theme in medieval social history related to its art, philosophy or literature.” Consequently the award is not limited to students who are majors in history or enrolled in history courses, but can indeed go to students in the fields of art, history, literature and philosophy, if their approaches follow socio-historical methods.

    Students must be nominated for this award by a professor affiliated with the Institute. Nominations for this annual award are collected and a winner chosen in the Spring or early Fall.

  • The Medieval Studies Institute First-Year Fellowship
  • This recruitment fellowship, representing a full year of funding, is offered annually to a first-year graduate student studying the Middle Ages in any department affiliated with the Institute.

    Students must be nominated by the department that accepted them. If you are a prospective graduate student, either in the process of applying or already accepted for the following fall, contact your department's Director of Graduate Studies to discuss your eligibility for this fellowship.
