The American Academy in Rome and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens award the Oscar Broneer Traveling Fellowship to encourage the study of the Greco-Roman world.
Purpose: The Fellowship will be awarded for research in Greece and Italy in alternate years. It is expected that the Fellow will use either the American Academy in Rome (AAR) or the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) as a base from which to pursue work through trips to sites, museums, or repositories of materials relevant to the Fellow's research.
Eligibility: Individuals who have spent a year as a Fellow of the AAR are eligible for this Fellowship based at the ASCSA and for research based in Athens and Greece. For the fellowship year of 2017-2018 applicants previously at the AAR and wishing to conduct research in Greece will be accepted. Candidates must have an approved dissertation proposal or, if they already hold the Ph.D., they should be at the beginning of their teaching career and without tenure. Projects may focus on any period of study in the humanities, although preference will be given to topics dealing with classical antiquity.
Terms: The Fellowship is awarded to one individual per year. It may be held at any time during the 2017-2018 academic year for a minimum of three and a maximum of six months. The award is for a maximum of $30,000, and is meant to cover expenses including housing at the host institution, travel (only one round-trip excursion from home base in U.S. or Europe to Athens and travel within Greece will be funded), and living expenses. Support from the host institution includes access to research facilities, assistance with obtaining permissions, passes to state museums and monuments, letters of introduction, invitations to various scholarly and other events, and access to other activities offered by the host institution. The award amount will be determined by the applicant’s approved budget. Applicants are urged to explore supplementary sources of support. A final report is due at the end of the award period, and the AAR and ASCSA expect that copies of all publications that result from research conducted at AAR and ASCSA be contributed to the their libraries.
Application: The application will consist of the candidate's curriculum vitae, a detailed research proposal, a plan for travel connected with the project, a budget for all expenses including travel, housing, food, fees, and other living expenses, and proposed dates. Applicants will need to consult with the host institution for costs associated with housing, food, and fees. The selection committee, in evaluating the candidate's proposal, will determine how reasonable and relevant the travel plan and budget appear in relation to the proposed research and the period of time requested for the Fellowship. Submit online at the ASCSA official web site.
Deadline: March 15
The award will be announced in spring 2017. The American School of Classical Studies at Athens does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, sex, sexual orientation, color, religion, ethnic origin, or disability when considering admission to any form of membership or application for employment.
