The Bullough Fellowship

Donald Bullough was Professor of Medieval History at the University of St Andrews from 1973 to 1991. The Bullough Fellowship was established in his memory to support established academics with research interests in medieval history. The financial aspect of the fellowship is a subsidy (up to £3000) towards the cost of travel to St Andrews and accommodation during your stay. The successful applicant is normally someone enjoying research leave from their own institution

The Fellowship carries with it no teaching duties, though the Fellow is expected to take part in the normal seminar life of the medieval historians during their stay in St Andrews. Weekly seminars, held on a Monday evening, run from September–December, and February–May. Fellows lead a workshop on their chosen research theme during their stay. Fellows are provided with computing facilities and an office alongside the medieval historians in the Department. The university library has an excellent collection for medieval historians.

Previous Fellows have included Christina Pössel, Cynthia Neville, Ross Balzaretti, Marlene Hennessy, Warren Brown, Edward Coleman, Richard Kaeuper, Natasha Hodgson, Jacqueline Murray, Ruth Mazo Karras, Cullen Chandler, Sarah Hamilton, Charles Insley, and Matthew Gabriele.
