• Summer 2022 Program Opportunities in Greece

    The American School of Classical Studies at Athens was founded in 1881 to provide American graduate students and scholars a base for their studies in the history and civilization of the Greek world. Today it is still a teaching institution, providing graduate students a unique opportunity to study firsthand the sites and monuments of Greece. The Summer Session and Summer Seminars allow students, scholars, and teachers to experience Greece first-hand with on-site learning.

    Scholarships Available for All Programs (for Graduate Students and Teachers)

    2022 Summer Seminars

    Eighteen-day sessions designed for those who wish to study specific topics in Greece and visit major monuments with exceptional scholars as study leaders, and to improve their understanding of the country’s landscape, history, literature, and culture. Choose one, or both(!), seminars – seminar topics change every summer.

    Aegean Networks of Technology (June 6-24, 2022)
    This seminar will explore four fundamental technologies in ancient Greece (ceramics, wood-working, stone carving, and bronze-casting) and how craft practitioners shared their expertise in multi-craft projects, such as building a boat or a temple. Participants will discover how these networks of technology developed in a broad Aegean context, from Athens and Corinth on the mainland to the Cycladic islands of Naxos, Paros, and Santorini, and in a deep time frame, from prehistory to contemporary traditional practices. Taught by Professor Eleni Hasaki, University of Arizona.

    The Northern Aegean: Macedon and Thrace (June 30 – July 18, 2022)
    In this seminar, participants will explore the Northern Aegean region during various time periods. The history of Macedon and Thrace bridges the East and West and offers a glimpse into some of the most significant developments in Greek history, such as colonization, cross-cultural relations, the Persian Wars, Athenian hegemony, and the rise of Macedon. Taught by Professors Amalia Avramidou, Democritus University of Thrace, and Denise Demetriou, University of California, San Diego.

    2022 Summer Session

    Six-week intensive introduction to Greece from antiquity through the modern period. The program provides the most extensive exposure to Greece, ancient and modern, for participants with interests in Classics and related fields. A strong academic component with participants researching and presenting topics on site. Offers unique opportunities to interact with eminent archaeologists in the field.

    For 2022, the Summer Session (June 13-July 27, 2022) will be directed by Professor J. Matthew Harrington, Tufts University. Roughly half of the session is spent in travel throughout Greece. Three trips give participants an introduction to the major archaeological sites and museum collections throughout the country. The extended trips vary from session to session, but traditionally include six days on Crete, ten days in the Peloponnese, and a week in Northern Greece. Roughly, 60 sites and museums are visited. The remainder of the session is devoted to study of the museums and monuments of Athens and the surrounding area with day trips. While in Athens, members visit and study the city’s important monuments and sites.

    Every participant gives two on-site oral reports of about twenty minutes each. Report topics are selected in consultation with the director, taking into account participants’ interests and skills.

  • William Sanders Scarborough Fellowship, American School of Classical Studies at Athens

    Application Deadline: January 15, 2022

    Wm. Sanders Scarborough
    William Sanders Scarborough

    This fellowship is intended to honor and remember Professor William Sanders Scarborough and to help foster diversity in the fields of Classical and Hellenic Studies and the Humanities more broadly by supporting students and teachers from underrepresented groups in their study and research at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.

    William Sanders Scarborough (1852–1926), the son of an enslaved woman and a freedman, was a pathbreaking African American Classical scholar and public intellectual. Scarborough’s scholarship included philological works on Greek and Roman authors, as well as studies of African languages and African American folklore. His First Lessons in Greek (1881) was the first foreign language textbook by an African American author. He taught at Ohio’s Wilberforce University and Payne Theological Seminary, serving as Wilberforce’s president from 1908–1920. At least twice in his life (1886 and 1896), Scarborough hoped to attend the American School, with the encouragement of the School’s Managing Committee. Lack of funding, coupled with his many professional responsibilities, kept Scarborough from realizing his dream of going to Greece.

    Eligibility: Graduate students, faculty members (K-12 and all levels of post-secondary education), and independent scholars residing in the United States or Canada, regardless of citizenship, whose geographic origin, diverse experiences, and socio-economic background are underrepresented at the School (including persons from the Black, Indigenous, and Persons of Color communities), and whose studies, research, or teaching would benefit from residency at the School. Fellowship recipients need not be specialists in the field of Classical Studies. The School welcomes applicants from faculty of K-12 schools and from students or faculty from public and private universities, colleges, and community colleges; and encourages applications from Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

    Terms and Duration: The fellowship supports up to three months in residence at the School to carry out proposed research projects, to join the School’s academic programs (field trips and seminars during the regular academic year or the summer, excavations at the Agora or Corinth, scientific field schools, etc.), and/or to develop knowledge, resources, and collegial networks to enhance their teaching. Applicants interested in using the fellowship to participate in summer programs should also submit separate applications to relevant programs of interest. Applicants to the Scarborough fellowship program wishing to be considered for summer programs in 2022 should contact the ASCSA Programs Administrator at application@ascsa.org for further guidance. Applicants wishing to use the Scarborough fellowship to offset costs of participation in the Regular Member academic program of the School must also apply directly for Regular Membership. The fellowship may not be held concurrently with Regular Member Fellowships.
    Awards granted in the January 2022 competition should normally be used between June 1, 2022 and May 30, 2023.

    Each of the awards provides for $1500 per month (rounded upwards to the nearest whole month to a maximum of 3 month) as a stipend. The fellowship provides room and
    board at Loring Hall, a waiver of any applicable School fees, and one roundtrip economy-class airfare to Athens. The School intends to make up to four such awards each year.

    OSCAR BRONEER TRAVELING FELLOWSHIP, 2020-2021
    Deadline: March 15, 2020

    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. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Fellowship will be awarded for research in Italy. It is expected that the Fellow will use the American Academy in Rome (AAR) as a base from which to pursue work through trips to sites, museums, or repositories of materials relevant to the Fellow’s research.
    EligibilityFor the 2020-2021 fellowship year, only applicants previously at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) are eligible for this Fellowship based at the AAR and for research based in Rome and Italy. Applicants must have spent a minimum of one month as a Member of the ASCSA at the time of application. 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 2020-2021 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 Rome and travel within Italy will be funded), and living expenses. Support from the host institution includes access to research facilities, 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 their relevant libraries.
    Application: The application will consist of the candidate’s curriculum vitae, a detailed research proposal (maximum of three pages single spaced), 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 should 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 all application materials, including three letters of recommendation to the American Academy in Rome. Materials may be sent via email to Shawn Miller, Program Director at s.miller@aarome.org, or via ground mail addressed to Oscar Broneer Traveling Fellowship, c/o American Academy in Rome, 7 East 60th Street, New York, NY 10022.
