The Early Career Fellowships in Hellenic Studies aim to support postdoctoral researchers who are citizens or permanent residents of Greece and Cyprus, and whose work requires continued access to material on site (e.g. archives, artifacts, archaeological sites). This encourages research of the highest quality on topics related to ancient Greek civilization. Fellowships include a stipend of $12,000 and the opportunity to visit the CHS offices in Nafplio, for up to 5 days, and in Washington, DC, for up to 10 days.
Prerequisites for fellowships are a PhD degree (or its equivalent). Applicants must have defended their degree before July 1. Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of Greece or Cyprus and will reside there during the fellowship in order to conduct the research outlined in their application. Besides completing the application, applicants must also submit: a detailed research proposal of no more than 1,000 words (bibliographies and references do not count toward the word limit); a curriculum vitae documenting qualifications to conduct the proposed research; and a sample of published or forthcoming work of no more than 10,000 words (bibliographies and references do not count toward the word limit).
