Deadline: January 15
Final stage Ph.D. dissertation, or Ph.D. held no longer than six years before application deadline.
French studies in the areas of: art, economics, history, history of science, linguistics, literature and social sciences. The scope and purpose of the Institut Français is to promote the study of French civilization, history, literature, and art in the United States. Also to preserve the memory of contributions to the history of modern civilization in North America by French missionaries, educators, explorers, settlers, scholars and artists. To encourage the work of scholars in these areas, the Institut has established the following awards: the Gilbert Chinard Historical Prize, awarded annually to the best American book on the history of French-American relations (on the recommendation of a committee of the Society for French Historical Studies); the Edouard Morot-Sir Pedagogical Prize, awarded annually for the best article on the teaching of French language and literature in the French Review; the Harmon Chadbourn Rorison and the Gilbert Chinard research fellowships, awarded annually to doctoral candidates and untenured junior professors who need funds to pursue research in France on French culture and history. In carrying out its objectives, the Institut Français de Washington has been aided by donations, gifts and bequests. A bequest of $50,000 in 1972 from Chicago industrialist Henry C. Morris was of particular importance for the continuation of the Institut’s endeavors. Awards given: Four $1500 awards for maintenance (not travel) during research in France for a period of at least two months.
