This is a non-stipendiary research fellowship in any branch of the arts or sciences related to Greece, intended to enable a senior scholar to spend a period of approximately three months at the School. Traditionally the award has been taken up between January and March, but a period in the first semester of the academic year will also be considered.
Early Career Fellowships at the British School at Athens are offered for up to 3 months for research in any branch of the arts or sciences related to Greece. The Fellowship is non-stipendiary, but accommodation and airfare are provided, either to Athens or Knossos. Early Career Fellowships are intended to enable scholars in first post to spend a period of research leave in Greece. They may, for example, be used to enhance a period of sabbatical or Research Council funded leave. They are not intended to support doctoral research. Fellows will be expected to conduct a programme of original research: the appointment carries no further formal obligations, although involvement in the academic life of the School (for example, in the form of a lecture or seminar) is welcomed. The Fellowship may be taken in either the autumn or the spring term. Accommodation is also offered to an accompanying spouse/partner, at a nominal daily rate. Regrettably, children cannot be accommodated.
The Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies offers up to two annual bursaries of £200 each to enable students enrolled in a UK university to participate in a British School at Athens fieldwork project (excavation, survey, study season). Preference will be given to students engaged in post-graduate research.
The recipient must submit a short report on the use of the award to the Assistant Director by September 10th of the year in which the award was given. The award will be announced within two months of the closing date.
The Catling Bursary was established by subscription in 1989 in honour of Hector and Elizabeth Catling on the occasion of Dr Catling's retirement after 18 years as Director of the British School at Athens.
The School Teacher Fellowship at the British School at Athens is offered each year to enable a teacher to pursue a project in Greece designed to enhance their teaching
The John Morrison Memorial Fund for Hellenic Maritime Studies has been inaugurated by gifts from the family of the late John Morrison in his memory. Its purpose is to further research into all branches of Hellenic maritime studies of any period.
Applications are invited from university graduates of Greek or Cypriot nationality for awards to cover the expenses of a stay in the United Kingdom of short duration for a specific project of study or research
