USA: Birgit Baldwin Fellowship

The Birgit Baldwin Fellowship in French Medieval History was established in 2004 by John W. Baldwin and Jenny Jochens in memory of their daughter Birgit. It is endowed through the generosity of her family.

The Baldwin Fellowship provides a grant of $20,000 to support a graduate student in a North American university who is researching and writing a significant dissertation for the Ph.D. on any subject in French medieval history that can be realized only by sustained research in the archives and libraries of France.

The fellowship helps defray research and living expenses for the equivalent of an academic year of study. It may be renewed for a second year upon demonstration of satisfactory progress. Because of the renewable nature of the fellowship, applications are solicited on a biannual basis. The Fellowship is open for 2012–2013. The deadline for applications is 15 November 2011.

The fellowship recipient must devote full time to the dissertation project and may not hold any job or teaching position or work on another project during the term of the fellowship. Applicants must be members of the Medieval Academy.

Current fellowship holders are

2010-2011 Mr. Thomas A. Greene, U. of Loyola at Chicago to support work on his dissertation "Emotions and Religious Culture in Ninth-Century Auxerre".

2011-2012 Ms. Regan Eby, Boston College to support work on her dissertation "Monasteries and Communities in Eleventh-Century Brittany".
