Purpose of the Fellowships

The purpose of the fellowship program is to encourage and support research of the highest quality in the field of Greek Studies.

It also covers comparative scholarship involving Greek Studies.

The fellowships are intended to help diverse scholars from around the world share ideas and forge new partnerships in a vibrant, cross-disciplinary context. The Centre particularly encourages innovative scholarship in the broad field of Greek studies, via fresh diachronic, synchronic, comparative, methodological or theoretical perspectives.
