The Institute for Research in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is pleased to offer four Solmsen Fellowships for an academic year. To be awarded to scholars from outside the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Through a generous bequest from Friedrich and Lieselotte Solmsen, the Solmsen Fellowships sponsor scholars working in the humanities on European history, literature, philosophy, politics, religion, art and culture in the classical, medieval, and/or early modern periods before the 1700. Solmsen Fellows are expected to be in residence at the IRH throughout the academic year. The award provides a stipend of $60,000, office space, support services, and access to all university facilities.
