The American School of Classical Research at Athens
Deadline: January 15, 2024
The Henry S. Robinson Fellowship provides funding for research at the ASCSA excavations at Ancient Corinth. It is named for Henry Robinson, Director of the School from 1959 to 1969, who at the same time, as Director of Corinth Excavations, set the stage for a new era by reviving fieldwork and research at Corinth.
Eligibility: Established scholar or Ph.D. candidate, for research on a primary publication or doctoral dissertation specifically on Corinth, requiring the use of the resources, archaeological site, and collections at the ASCSA excavations at Ancient Corinth in Greece. Open to all nationalities. The Robinson Fellowship may not be held concurrently with another School fellowship. Preference is given to candidates who have not previously held the Robinson Fellowship or received substantial ASCSA funding for the same project. Preference may be given to a candidate with a proposal that is concerned with Corinth in the Greek period.
Terms: The fellowship program allocates $4,000 per year from which awards may be given to one or more individuals. School fees are waived. Funding is for research activities at Corinth, to be used to cover living expenses, including room, board, and other costs associated with the study, such as costs of scientific analyses and specialized photography (e.g., infrared/3D scanning/etc.). The fellowship cannot be used for travel costs (to and from country of origin or within Greece). 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 Hill House and, as appropriate, the Blegen Library or the Gennadius Library of the School.
Duration: Up to three months, within the period from July 1, 2024 to June 30, 2025. (Note: Availability of rooms and workspace is limited during the excavation season from April to June.) Awardee will set fellowship term dates in consultation with staff at Corinth.
Submit an online application. The application should include a curriculum vitae, proposal (including project outline, explanation of goals, statement of the significance of the project, work completed to date, schedule for completion, dates for project; up to three pages, single spaced), budget, and two letters of support, including one from dissertation advisor if applicant is a Ph.D. candidate.
