The Gennadius Library of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens
Deadline: January 15, 2018
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.
Fields of study: Late Antiquity, Byzantine Studies, post-Byzantine Studies, or Modern Greek Studies.
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.
Terms: A stipend of $11,500 plus room, board, and waiver of School fees. Fellows are expected to be in residence at the School for the full academic year from early September to June 1. A final report is due at the end of the award period, and the ASCSA expects that copies of all publications that result from research conducted as a Fellow of the ASCSA be contributed to 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.
Application: Submit application form for “Associate Membership with Fellowship,” curriculum vitae, description of the proposed project (up to 750 words), and three letters of reference online.
