The Institute will encourage fellows to consider its publications programme — the journal, Mediaeval Studies, and a number of monograph series — when writing up the results of their fellowship. There are no application forms, but interested individuals are asked to submit a letter outlining their plans for the year and providing their detailed reasons for wishing to be at the Pontifical Institute. The letter, along with an up-to-date curriculum vitae, should be sent via email to Janet Friskney at firstname.lastname@example.org
