The American School of Classical Studies at Athens is pleased to announce the first year of a five-year program of fellowships funded by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. The Samuel H. Kress Foundation devotes its resources to advancing the history, conservation, and enjoyment of the vast heritage of European art, architecture, and archaeology from antiquity to the early 19th century.
Eligibility: Senior (post-doctoral) scholars working on a publication assignment from Corinth, the Athenian Agora, Lerna or from an affiliated project of the School are eligible to apply. Current staff of the School are not eligible.

Stipends are for a minimum of three months (up to $10,000) to a maximum of nine months (up to $30,000) during the ASCSA fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). School fees, travel costs, housing, board, residence permits (if applicable), and other living expenses are to be paid out of the stipend by the recipient. A final report and budget are 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 the Blegen Library or another relevant library of the School.
