The George T. and Margaret W. Romani Fellowships

There is no Romani Fellowship for the 2014-15 academic year. The next award will be offered for the 2015-16 academic year.

Thanks to the generosity of George T. and Margaret W. Romani, a fellowship is available from CMRS to help support graduate students at UCLA. A CMRS Romani Fellowship of $20,000 is awarded every other year. Funding for student fees, tuition, and other expenses must be provided by the recipient’s academic department or other sources.

To be considered for the award, students must be nominated by their academic departments. Nominees must express a commitment to pursuing studies in some aspect of the Middle Ages or Renaissance, and must be studying under the mentorship of a faculty member who is an active member of CMRS. Nominations are accepted for students in three categories: graduate students newly admitted to UCLA; continuing UCLA graduate students; and graduate students from other universities who have been invited to study at UCLA for a full academic year. Departments may nominate up to two students a year. Students selected to receive the Romani Fellowship may not hold another major fellowship (i.e., an award greater than $5,000) simultaneously.
