Biruté Ciplijauskaité Postdoctoral Fellowships in Peninsular Spanish Literature and Culture at Wisconsin-Madison University

Call illustration

The Institute for Research in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is pleased to offer up to three Biruté Ciplijauskaité Fellowships for the 2023-2024 academic year, to be awarded to scholars from outside the University of Wisconsin–Madison. These fellowships may be renewable for a second year. Thanks to a generous bequest by the late Biruté Ciplijauskaité, John Bascom Professor Emerita in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and a Senior Fellow of IRH, these fellowships are available to scholars with a Ph.D. (at any stage of career), working in Spanish Iberian cultural studies with a preference for Peninsular Spanish poetry. The Ciplijauskaité Fellowship does not typically support editions or translations.

Ciplijauskaité Fellows are expected to be in residence throughout the academic year (except for short research trips, lectures, conferences, etc.) and may extend their residency through the following summer on a non-stipendiary basis. However, the fellowship may not be deferred for any reason. The award provides a stipend of $60,000, office space, support services, and access to all university facilities.

The deadline for the 2023-2024 Ciplijauskaité Fellowship competition is Thursday, October 27, 2022. The final notification of the awards will be sent in March 2023.
