Steinmetz Family Foundation Museum Fellowship – Corinth Excavations

American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA)

Deadline: July 15, 2023

Thanks to a grant from the Steinmetz Family Foundation, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) has been fortunate to have a Museum Education Fellow at the Corinth Excavations since October 2014.  Once again, the ASCSA invites applications for a one-year fellowship in museum education and collections management starting September 1, 2023, with the possibility of a one-year extension at the School’s discretion.  The Steinmetz Family Foundation Museum Fellow will, in collaboration with the Associate Director, design and implement educational resources for use online and on-site at Corinth Excavations. The Fellow will also assist in collections management work in the excavation storerooms to record and catalog artifacts.

The educational resources from Corinth Excavations delivered through this grant advance knowledge of Greece in all periods by bridging the gap between the research conducted by archaeologists and the teaching of the past in the classroom both locally and globally. Lesson plans, online programs, and on-site programs, give students worldwide access to the stories and artifacts of generations of people who lived in Corinth, a crossroads of culture for thousands of years.


September 1, 2023-August 31, 2024 (with possibility of renewal until August 31, 2025)


$25,000 USD annual stipend (paid quarterly), plus waived membership fees and half-board and full room at Hill House, in Corinth. The fellow will also have $2,000 available to fund travel required for carrying out duties of the position (not for moving expenses); costs will be reimbursed against receipts.
