The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies awards fellowships of €1100 per month to researchers at BA, MA or Postdoc level. The fellowships are for 1–6 months. Interested researchers are expected to work on a specific project from the field of Neo-Latin literature and to take residence in Innsbruck during the period of the fellowship. They will take part in the activities of the Institute and discuss their work with its members. A talk at the end of the scholarship period will present the progress/results of the project to a larger audience. Projects with a link to the research programme of the Institute will be given preference, but other projects are also invited.
