The M. Alison Frantz Fellowship, formerly known as the Gennadeion Fellow in Post-Classical Studies, was named in honor of archaeologist, Byzantinist, and photographer M. Alison Frantz (1903 – 1995), whose photographs of antiquities are widely used in books on Greek culture.

Eligibility: PhD candidates and recent PhDs (up to five years) from a U.S. or Canadian institution. Candidates should demonstrate their need to work in the Gennadius Library.

Please note that for the 2018-2019 academic year, the Blegen and the 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.
