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 in reviving field work at Corinth.
Eligibility: Ph.D. candidate or recent Ph.D. (within five years), for research on a doctoral dissertation or primary publication 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.
Terms: The fellowship award is up to $4,500 for one or more individuals. Funding is for research activities at Corinth, to be used to cover living expenses, including room, board, and School fees, and other costs associated with the study, such as photography and drawings. The fellowship does not allow 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 the Blegen Library or the Gennadius Library of the School.
Duration: Up to three months, within the period from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015. (Note: Availability of rooms and workspace is limited during the excavation season from April to June.)
Application: Submit Associate Membership application on the ASCSA web site at http://www.ascsa.edu.gr/index.php/admission-membership/student-associate-membership. The application should include a curriculum vitae, proposal statement including project outline, explanation of goals, statement of the significance of the project, work completed to date, schedule for completion, dates for project, budget, and two letters of support, including one from dissertation advisor if applicant is a Ph.D. candidate.
