Travel grant for research purposes to Venice, Italy

The Foundation awards travel grants to individual scholars to support historical research on Venice and the former Venetian empire, and for the study of contemporary Venetian society and culture. Applicants from all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences are eligible areas of study, including, but not limited to, archaeology, architecture, art, bibliography, economics, history, history of science, law, literature, music, political science, religion, and theater. Other relevant research interests will be considered.

Applicants and grantees are advised to plan for the added difficulties surrounding travel during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please consider potential restrictions on both international and domestic travel. Additionally, access to archives and other research institutions can be difficult to ascertain and continue to change. When planning travel and research, grantees should consult the recommendations of the health authorities of their nations and Italy, as well as the World Health Organization.

Researchers should be aware that access to the Archivio di Stato di Venezia has been curtailed. Reservations must be booked online in advance and show proof of vaccination. Places are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
