ASCSA 2014-2015 Study in Greece for Graduate Students

American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA)

Website: http://www.ascsa.edu.gr

Deadline: January 15, 2014

The American School of Classical Studies at Athens, one of America’s most distinguished centers devoted to advanced teaching and research, 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, over 130 years later, it is still a teaching institution, providing graduate students a unique opportunity to study firsthand the sites and monuments of Greece. The School is also a superb resource for senior scholars pursuing research in many fields ranging from prehistoric to modern Greece, thanks to its internationally renowned libraries, the Blegen, focusing on all aspects of Greece from its earliest prehistory to late antiquity, and the Gennadius, which concentrates on the Greek world after the end of antiquity.
 
Membership application to the ASCSA must be made online at http://www.ascsa.edu.gr at the same time you apply to any outside funding organization for work at the School.
