Marc de Montalembert Prize 2012
The Marc de Montalembert Foundation and the Institut national d'histoire de l'art (INHA) joined together to establish the Marc de Montalembert Prize. This award of 8000 euros aims to foster the completion of an individual research dedicated to expand the knowledge of Mediterranean arts and culture. In addition, the selected candidate will be offered the opportunity to stay in residence at the Marc de Montalembert Foundation's headquarters in Rhodes, Greece.
Applicants should be born in, or have the nationality of one of the countries that surround the Mediterranean Sea. They must be under 35 years of age on 30 November 2010, and hold an academic degree. Applicants will be evaluated according to their curriculum vitae and their research project. Attention will be given to projects' originality, interest, feasibility and relevance regarding to the Mediterranean region and to INHA's research programmes. Applications should be submitted in the form of a project proposal, with attached budget, schedule for completion, and a concise description of expected results in view of a possible diffusion. Projects must be individual and shall not be related to PhD researches, or to the organization of an exhibition or a programme of cultural events.
The implementation of the project, six to nine months long, will start by a one-month stay in Paris, as a visiting scholar at the INHA. It will end by a second travel to Paris, during which research results will be the subject of a public presentation. The cost of the two stays will be covered by both the Marc de Montalembert Foundation and the INHA. In addition, the selected candidate will benefit from the guidance and support of an INHA scientific advisor. Finally, the project results will be published and disseminated in a proper way, with INHA's help.
