About the fellowships

Overview

This program aims to support researchers whose work requires continued access to material on site (e.g. archives, artifacts, archaeological sites), and to encourage research of the highest quality on topics related to ancient Greek civilization. The fellowships are offered by the CHS in Washington, DC, and supported administratively and logistically by the CHS in Greece.

Provisions for the fellows

  • All fellows receive appointments for one year, beginning on June 1 and receive access to the electronic resources of the Harvard library system for the duration of their fellowship.
  • Contingent on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, successful candidates have the opportunity to visit the CHS offices in Nafplio, for up to 5 days, and in Washington, DC, for up to 10 days.
  • The fellowship award includes a stipend of $9,000 (USD), which may be used at the discretion of the fellow to support her/his research and the execution of the project. Additionally, the CHS covers travel expenses for each fellow's visit to Nafplio and to Washington, DC. 

Eligibility

Prerequisites for fellowships are:

  • A PhD degree (or its equivalent). Applicants must have defended their degree before July 1, 2020.
  • Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of Greece or Cyprus.

Applicants may not apply to other CHS related fellowship programs, such as the Fellowships in Hellenic Studies Program in Washington, DC, during the same application cycle.
