Venetian Research Program: U.S.

for Individual Scholars 

The Foundation awards travel grants to individual scholars to support historical research on Venice and the former Venetian empire, and for the study of contemporary Venetian society and culture. Disciplines of the humanities and social sciences are eligible areas of study, including (but not limited to) archaeology, architecture, art, bibliography, economics, history, history of science, law, literature, music, political science, religion, and theater. One of the Venetian Research Program grantees will be distinguished with the Henry A. Millon Award in Art and Architectural History and one with the Giles Constable Award.

Applicants and grantees are advised to plan for the added difficulties surrounding travel during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please consider potential restrictions on both international and domestic travel. Additionally, access to archives and other research institutions can be difficult to ascertain and continue to change. When planning travel and research, grantees should consult the recommendations of the health authorities of their nations and Italy, as well as the World Health Organization.

To support scholars, the Foundation has lengthened the grant period to a two-year timeframe. Grantees will be able to adjust their travel plans and submit an updated itinerary. Each will be asked to confirm the accessibility of their research sites. Grant payments will be provided close to each scholar’s research period. We hope that this added flexibility will allow scholars to stay safe while moving forward with their important work.

Research Location:

Funds may be used for travel to and residence in Venice and the former Venetian empire; transportation within the Veneto; and specific research expenses.

Past grantees only may apply for travel and research outside of the Veneto. Scholars who have already received and accepted a Delmas grant for their work in Venice and the Veneto are eligible for subsequent, one-time grants of up to $3,000 (one month maximum) to work exclusively on Venetian materials in other libraries or museums.  The proposed study must be related to the previous Delmas grant.

Eligible applicants must:

  • be citizens or permanent residents of the United States*
  • have experience in advanced research at the graduate level or equivalent. PhD students must have completed all course work at the time of application.
  • be able to complete research before the end of September 2023.

Award Amounts:

Applications will be entertained for grants up to a maximum of $20,000 for a full academic year. Grants for the maximum amount are rarely awarded, and successful applicants are frequently awarded less than the amount requested.  Award amounts are based on length of stay, plus travel and research costs.
