The Tablinum fellowships
Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio, Vicenza
Stiftung Bibliothek Werner Oechslin, Einsiedeln

Scholarship description

The fellowship is for the purpose of developing a research project in the humanities involving two institutions, possibly with a stay in both: the Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio, Vicenza and the Stiftung Bibliothek Werner Oechslin, Einsiedeln


  • culture + method: two architecture and humanities libraries lay great store by the historical aspect of their disciplines and believe in a research method based on the exploration of contexts.
  • internationality + multiculturality: we encourage scholars to go beyond their own countries to broaden their range of enquiry.
  • complementarity: we bring together partly overlapping and partly diverse resources and skills.
  • community: we create a community of scholars who will leave tangible signs of their research experience (e.g. commentary on/translation of a book or part of a book) that will give rise to further discussion.


The first fellowship will have a duration of a minimum 1 month and a maximum 3 months starting in September 2024. Proposals from other periods, including earlier ones, and of different duration by applicants will be evaluated, if justified by the research project.

The fellowship, financed by the two institutions, covers the following costs for each institution:

  • Accommodation
  • Insurance
  • Library access
  • Workstation (scanner, photocopier, WiFi)
  • Travel between the two institutions [*]
  • Payment of 2,000 euros a month (Italy)/2,000 CHF a month (Switzerland)

[* Depending on the availability of funds, the grant may also contribute to travel expenses from/to the place of residence]

The fellowship is addressed to researchers of any nationality preferably born after 1 January 1984. Selection by the directors of the two institutions is made on the basis of the submitted research project, curriculum vitae and recommendation letter(s) (minimum one, maximum three).

To apply for the first TABLINUM fellowship, please complete the online form by 31 March 2024.
