American School of Classical Studies at Athens

January 15, 2019


The Gennadius Library offers the Cotsen Traveling Fellowship, a short-term grant awarded each year to scholars and graduate students pursuing research topics that require the use of the Gennadeion collections.

The grant was established by the Overseers of the Gennadius Library to honor Lloyd E. Cotsen, Chairman emeritus of the Overseers and benefactor of the Library.

Eligibility:  Senior scholars and graduate students of any nationality. 

Terms:  Stipend of $2,000. School fees are waived for a maximum of two months. Fellowship does not include costs for School trips, room, or board. Requires residency in Athens of at least one month during the academic year from September 1 to June 1. The recipient is expected to take part in the activities of the Gennadius Library and the School as a whole in addition to pursuing research. 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 Gennadius Library.
