      THE AMERICAN SCHOOL OF CLASSICAL STUDIES AT ATHENS
      BULLETIN

      NEH FELLOWSHIPS 2003-2004
      AT THE AMERICAN SCHOOL OF CLASSICAL STUDIES AT ATHENS

      Founded in 1881, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens is the
      most significant resource in Greece for American scholars in the fields of
      ancient and post-classical studies in Greek language, literature, history,
      archaeology, and art. It offers two major research libraries: the Blegen,
      with 80,000 volumes dedicated to ancient Greece; and the Gennadius, with
      106,000 volumes and archives devoted to post-classical Greece. The School
      also sponsors excavations and provides centers for advanced research in
      archaeological and related topics at its excavations in the Athenian Agora
      and Corinth, and houses an archaeological laboratory at the main building
      complex in Athens. By agreement with the Greek government, the School is
      authorized to serve as liaison with the Greek Ministry of Culture on behalf
      of American students and scholars for the acquisition of permits to
      excavate and to study museum collections.

      American School has demonstrated its effectiveness in supporting projects
      of fourteen scholars with distinguished research and teaching careers in
      the humanities.
