I Tatti offers fifteen Residential Fellowships annually, each lasting for twelve months, to support post-doctoral research related to the Italian Renaissance. This research encompasses various aspects and spans from the 14th to the 17th century, including transnational dialogues with other cultures. Fellows have access to the Biblioteca Berenson, a part of the Harvard Library system, which provides extensive online journals and interdisciplinary resources for studying late medieval and early modern Italy. The fellowship year, running from July 1 to June 30, includes academic activities, exploratory seminars, workshops, and presentations of in-progress projects.

Research subjects covered include art, architecture, history, literature, material culture, music, philosophy, religion, and science within the context of the Italian Renaissance. Projects related to the transmission of ideas, objects, and people during this period are also welcomed. Applicants should demonstrate the feasibility of conducting most of their research in Florence. Renewals or repeats of fellowships are not granted, and scholars may apply for only one type of I Tatti fellowship per academic year. The stipend is $65,000, with a supplement for relocation expenses or a housing subsidy if necessary.

Maximum Grant Amounts:

  • Grants can be up to $20,000 for institutions or $5,000 for individual organizers.
  • Most grants for scholarly books are typically $5,000, but larger subsidies, as high as $8,000, are available for major and expensive books.

Eligibility for Book Grants:

  • Grants are available for forthcoming scholarly books on the Italian Renaissance.
  • They can be awarded to either the publisher to cover production costs or to the applicant for expense reimbursement (e.g., for photographs and reproduction rights).
  • The grant will only be disbursed once the book is published, and all invoices or receipts are submitted to I Tatti.
  • Repeat grants are rare, and this grant cannot be combined with other I Tatti funding.

Eligibility for Seminar and Conference Grants:

  • Grants are provided to support seminars and conference sessions dedicated to various aspects of the Italian Renaissance, historically spanning the 14th to the 17th century and geographically including transnational dialogues between Italy and other cultures.
  • These grants aim to promote the presence of the Renaissance in less visible contexts.
  • Eligibility extends to all Harvard-appointed Fellows, including Full-year and Term Fellows, as well as Graduate Fellows.
  • Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and can be submitted after the fellowship period begins, but within one year after it ends.
  • Similar to the book grants, this grant cannot be combined with other funding from I Tatti, and it must be disbursed to the individual who made the application.
