It is anticipated that one scholar will be named for each of the next several years as the John Ellliott Member. Scholars pursuing research in the history and culture of Early Modern Spain are encouraged to apply. The John Elliott Membership has been made possible thanks to sponsorship from the Center for Spain in America. Selection for the John Elliott Membership is handled through the School's membership competition, for which the next application deadline is November 1st, 2017 for participation during the academic year 2018-2019. The School of Historical Studies expects to select one scholar to be the John Elliott Member for the 2018-19 academic year. The first John Elliott Member in the School is Fabien Montcher who arrived at the Institute in September 2016.
