Today, the ASCSA provides graduate students and scholars from a consortium of 180 North American colleges and universities a base for research and study in Greece through an academic year program, two summer sessions, and an advanced Medieval Greek summer program. American institutions with curricula in classics, classical archaeology, history, linguistic studies, Byzantine, Ottoman, and Modern Greek studies, political science, and other fields including the archaeological sciences, regard the outstanding academic programs, excavations, libraries and other facilities of the ASCSA as extensions of their own institutions’ programs and scholarly resources. The ASCSA’s academic program for postgraduate students is viewed by many institutions as a requirement for the well-rounded Ph.D. in Greek area studies. Many of today’s leading faculty in North American universities in these core disciplines are alumni/ae of the School. The ASCSA has had a significant impact on thousands of scholars for over four generations who have participated in its programs and conducted research in Greece under its auspices. The ASCSA represents “the best and the brightest” of American scholarship and education in Greece, a place of strategic, historical, economic, and social importance from antiquity to the present.
As a private non-project organization with 501(c)3 status in the United States, the School relies on the support of past members and friends to maintain and expand its programs.
