      NEH FELLOWSHIPS 2005-2006
      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, philosophy, and art, from pre-Hellenic times to the present.
      It offers two major research libraries: the Blegen, with 86,500 volumes
      dedicated to the ancient Mediterranean world; and the Gennadius, with
      110,500 volumes and archives devoted to post-classical Hellenic
      civilization and, more broadly, the Balkans and the eastern Mediterranean.
      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 it 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.

      In the eleven years since its inception, the NEH Fellowship program at the
      American School has demonstrated its effectiveness by supporting projects
      for eighteen scholars with distinguished research and teaching careers in
      the humanities.

      Those Eligible: Postdoctoral scholars and professionals in relevant fields
      who are U.S. citizens or foreign nationals who have lived in the U.S. for
      the three years immediately preceding the application deadline. Applicants
      must have completed their professional training but do not have to hold the
      Ph.D.

      Terms: Two to four fellowships, five to ten months in duration. Maximum
      stipend for a five-month project, $17,500; for a ten-month project,
      $35,000. Term must coincide with American School's academic year, September
      to June.

      Application: a) Cover sheet is attached or at www.ascsa.edu.gr. b) A
      statement of the project (up to five pages), including desired number of
      months in Greece, a timetable, explicit goals, a selected bibliography, and
      the importance of the work, the methodologies involved, where applicable,
      and the reasons it should occur in Athens at the American School of
      Classical Studies. c) Curriculum vitae with list of publications. d) Three
      letters of reference from individuals familiar with the applicant's work
      and field of interest who can comment on the feasibility of the project and
      the applicant's ability to complete it successfully.
