The American School of Classical Studies at Athens is one of America’s most distinguished teaching institutions devoted to advanced study and research of the Greek world. The School provides a unique opportunity to study first-hand the sites and monuments of Greece, and is also a superb resource for research in fields ranging from antiquity to modern Greece, thanks to its two internationally renowned libraries, archives, excavation study centers, and an archaeological science laboratory. 

The ASCSA has over 25 fellowships available to Graduate students, as well as Post-Doctoral and established scholars.

Be aware that each fellowship may have a different deadline. Recommendations are due on the same date as the deadline for the application, unless otherwise noted.
