Lee Snyder Memorial Fund

Please consider making a donation to the Lee Snyder Memorial Fund.

The Lee Snyder Memorial Fund will honor the legacy of the late Dr. Lee Daniel Snyder, professor of medieval and Renaissance history at New College from 1969 to 2003, by supporting two of the programs to which he was most dedicated. Dr. Snyder was the founder and longtime director of the biennial New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies, and a strong supporter of New College’s rigorous, individualized educational program.

Lee Snyder Student Research and Travel Grant
The Lee Snyder Student Research and Travel Grant is awarded to students pursuing academic study or thesis research abroad. Preference is given to students in History and/or Medieval/Renaissance Studies. If there are no applicants in these areas, the grants will be opened to students in other areas whose program of study requires travel abroad. The number and amount of these grants depends upon funds available. The Student Research and Travel Grant Committee, in consultation with the history faculty and the medieval/Renaissance studies steering committee, oversees the selection of grant recipients.

Lee Snyder Prize
The Lee Snyder Prize recognizes the most outstanding paper presented at the biennial New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies. The winner of the award will receive a cash honorarium. A new winner will be selected at each biennial Conference.

The Biennial New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies, founded by Lee Snyder in 1978, covers all aspects of the Middle Ages and Renaissance and brings together scholars from all over the United States, Europe, and beyond, for three full days of panels on European and Mediterranean history, literature, art and religion from the fourth to the seventeenth centuries. The conference’s broad historical and disciplinary scope makes it particularly hospitable to interdisciplinary work, and it is internationally recognized as one of the preeminent venues for researchers working in Italian medieval and Renaissance studies.
