Study In Greece 2018-2019
ASCSA Programs And Fellowships
The American School of Classical Studies at Athens, one of America’s most distinguished centers devoted to advanced teaching and research, was founded in 1881 to provide American graduate students and scholars a base for their studies in the history and civilization of the Greek world. Today, over 135 years later, it is still a teaching institution, providing graduate students a unique opportunity to study firsthand the sites and monuments of Greece. The School is also a superb resource for senior scholars pursuing research in many fields ranging from prehistoric to modern Greece, thanks to its internationally renowned libraries, the Blegen, focusing on all aspects of Greece from its earliest prehistory to late antiquity, and the Gennadius, which concentrates on the Greek world after the end of antiquity. (Note: For the 2018-2019 academic year, the Blegen and Gennadius libraries may be closed for up to six months between January and June for reorganization; members of the School will continue to have access to other facilities of the School and other libraries in Athens).

The Asia Minor and Pontos Hellenic Research Center (AMPHRC) announces funds to support original research on the study of Hellenism in Asia Minor, Eastern Thrace, and Pontos, including the destruction of Greek communities in the early twentieth century by two consecutive Turkish regimes. The availability of these funds is made possible due to a special arrangement between the Ivan Savvidis Foundation Scholarship Fund and the AMPHRC.
Since its founding, the AMPHRC has been dedicated to expanding the knowledge of contemporary scholars, and informing the public at large about the history and genocide of Greeks in Anatolia. The AMPHRC has sponsored several international conferences in Chicago and New York, established an office and research library, has created a curriculum for high school use, and published several books.
We invite original research proposals from qualified individuals (recent PhDs, PhD students, postdoctoral and senior scholars). The Center is particularly interested in the period approximately between 1821 to 1924. We are interested in subjects such as, e.g., the social, political and economic life of Greeks in the Ottoman Empire, the policy of Greece regarding the Greeks of Asia Minor, the genocide, and the Greek Diaspora.
Postdoctoral grants for basic research in all fields. The maximum grant is $6,000. The deadlines (including receipt of two referee letters) are 1 October and 1 December . Decisions are announced in February and April. Information and forms are available at the society's Web site If electronic access is denied, write to Franklin Research Grants, stating the nature of your research and proposed use of funds, at American Philosophical Soc., 104 South 5th St., Philadelphia, PA 19106-3387.

The University of Cincinnati Classics Department is pleased to offer two types of fellowships for study and research in the fields of philology, history, or archaeology at the John Miller Burnam Classics Library: Tytus Fellowships during the academic year, and Cincinnati Summer Residencies from May to August.
See our webpage for access to further information on each program and to online application forms.
Senior scholars are invited to apply for the Margo Tytus Visiting Scholars Program . Applicants for this program will ordinarily be a minimum of five years beyond receipt of the Ph.D., with notable publication histories. Tytus Scholars are expected to be in residence at the University of Cincinnati for a minimum of one semester (ca. four months) and a maximum of two during the regular academic year; see UC Academic Calendar. In exceptional circumstances, Tytus Scholars may be appointed for a shorter term (one to two months) during the regular academic year. Tytus Scholars will receive a monthly stipend of $1,500 plus housing near campus and a transportation allowance, as well as office space attached to the Burnam Classics Library.
More recent PhDs and other scholars who would benefit from the use of a world-class classics library are invited to apply for the Cincinnati Summer Residency program. Applicants for this program will have their Ph.D. in hand by the time of application, and will ordinarily be in residence at the University of Cincinnati for approximately two months in the summer terms, May to mid-August; see UC Academic Calendar. Cincinnati Summer Residents will receive housing near campus and office space attached to the Burnam Classics Library. Residents are not eligible for a stipend or travel reimbursement.
Apart from residence in Cincinnati for the term of the relevant fellowship, the only obligation of participants in either program is to pursue their own research. They will also have access to the Klau Library at neighboring Hebrew Union College. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate a need for resources peculiar to the Burnam Classics Library or Department of Classics archives, and have not previously been able to access them. For Cincinnati Summer Residents, special consideration will be given to scholars without access to a research library through their home institutions.
The deadline for both fellowships is February 1.
The University of Cincinnati Burnam Classics Library is one of the world's premier collections in the field of Classical Studies. Comprising 269,000 volumes and a wide range of electronic resources, the library covers all aspects of the Classics: languages and literatures, history, civilization, art, and archaeology. Of special value for scholars is both the richness of the collection and its accessibility; almost any avenue of research in the classics or the post-classical Greek world can be pursued deeply and broadly under a single roof. The unusually comprehensive core collection, maintained by professional classicist librarians, is augmented by several special collections, including 15,000 nineteenth century German Programmschriften, plus extensive holdings in Palaeography, Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies. At neighboring Hebrew Union College is the Klau Library, with holdings in excess of 445,000 volumes, rich in Judaica and Near Eastern Studies.

A. W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Medieval Studies
The Medieval Institute offers a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship for a junior scholar in Medieval Studies, made possible through the generous response of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to a challenge grant awarded to Notre Dame by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The fellowship will permit an outstanding young scholar in any field of medieval studies to continue his or her research while in residence at Notre Dame's Medieval Institute.
The Mellon Fellow's principal obligation will be to pursue his or her research.

The Fellow will be provided with an office in the Medieval Institute, full library and computer privileges, and access to the Institute's research tools. The Fellow will be expected to reside in South Bend.
At the conclusion of the Fellow's period of residency, three senior scholars are invited to campus for a half-day public seminar discussion of the Fellow's research. The Fellow is encouraged to invite leading researchers who can critique a draft version of the Fellow's work and offer advice on issues arising out of the work. The panelists spend additional time with the Fellow in one-to-one conversation and close reading of the draft.
Eligibility: Mellon scholars must hold a tenure-track appointment at a U.S. institution and plan to return to their institution following their fellowship year. Applicants must have the Ph.D. in hand as of the application date and must not be more than five years beyond the Ph.D. at the time of the application.
Stipend: $40,000 (paid directly to the Fellow's home institution)
Application deadline: January 4.
Application procedure: Applicants should submit a project proposal of no more than five pages describing their proposed research, indicating how it builds on existing scholarship, and suggesting how it will benefit from broader interdisciplinary studies.
