Each year the FSA gives out around sixty scholarships, for one to two months (exceptionally, for longer periods). It is possible to be awarded an FSA scholarship two years in a row.
Each year, scholarships are allocated in one session only. The closing date for applications is 31 October for the following calendar year.
Study of material while holding a scholarship
Anyone wishing to consult published material that is available for open access or kept in a reserve must send to the FSA ( email@example.com ) at least two months before the intended date of stay (this deadline must be complied with in order to obtain permission) the following:
- A detailed list of the material, which must include the inventory numbers and full reference of the publication, title, year, and page (one list per museum).
- A covering letter that includes the address, qualifications and role of the person making the request (doctoral students should specify their university, the subject of their research and their supervisor) and explaining the reasons for requesting access to the material, and specifying the desired period for the work to be done.
All vague or incomplete lists will be returned, as incomplete requests have no chance of succeeding.
Note that, unless the researcher is the discoverer of unpublished material or has officially obtained the right to publish it, one-off consultation requests can only be made for material (remains, objects and so on) that has been properly published. In this context, it should be recalled that references in the Chronicle of Excavations in Greece in the BCH are not considered publication.
