Venetian Research Program: British & Commonwealth

for Individual Scholars

The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation – British and Commonwealth Committee – announces its programme of grants for study based on travel to and research in Venice and the Veneto and other territories of the former Venetian Republic.

Grants will be awarded for historical research on Venice and its empire, and for the study of contemporary Venetian society and culture. Applicants from all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences are eligible for areas of study including, but not limited to: anthropology; archaeology; architecture; art; bibliography; economics; history; history of science; law; literature; music; political thought; religion; theatre; film and television. Applications for research on environment and conservation are welcomed. Other relevant research interests will be considered.

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 time frame. 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.

2020-2022 British & Commonwealth Grantees
2019-2020 British & Commonwealth Grantees
2018-2019 British & Commonwealth Grantees
2017-2018 British & Commonwealth Grantees

The application deadline for the British and Commonwealth Programme is on 1st May every year.

The awards will be announced by the early summer.

Eligible applicants must

  • be citizens or permanent residents of Great Britain or the Commonwealth, and/or be enrolled for research at a British or Commonwealth university, and/or be permanent or affiliated members of a British or Commonwealth university. Experienced curatorial or conservation staff at British or Commonwealth galleries and museums are also welcome to apply
  • have experience in advanced research at the graduate level or equivalent.   If a graduate student, have fulfilled all doctoral requirements except completion of the dissertation.

Grants for the maximum amount – normally £5000.00 – are rarely awarded. Funding is granted primarily for travel and accommodation, but additional research expenses may also be considered. Scholars who have already received and accepted a Delmas grant are eligible to apply for grants, normally for one month, to continue the work related to the previous grant, focused on Venetian material in libraries, archives, museums or galleries outside Venice. Applicants must not submit for funding for both grants within the same year.

Applicants must notify the Committee immediately upon receipt of any other grant for research in the same area.

Any person who has accepted three or more Delmas grants for Venetian research (regardless of amount or timing) will be ineligible for consideration for two programme years after the previous grant. Thereafter, the two-year hiatus continues to apply after each grant.

All successful applicants must submit a report to the Chairman within three months of completing their funded period of research. Failure to do so will render applicants ineligible for future Delmas funding.
