STANLEY J. SEEGER FELLOWSHIPS FOR STUDY AND/OR RESEARCH IN GREECE SUMMER 2013
The Center for Hellenic Studies offers a limited number of Stanley J. Seeger Fellowships for Princeton graduate students whose work would benefit from summer travel for study and/or research in Greece, Cyprus, or other Mediterranean countries relevant to the study of Classical, Byzantine, or Modern Greece. Graduate students from all Princeton departments are welcome to apply.
Graduate students applying for support may choose from among a wide range of opportunities: summer study programs in Greece, archaeological work, independent research and travel (pre-dissertation), modern Greek language courses, dissertation research, summer employment, etc. The Center for Hellenic Studies has prepared a listing entitled Study in Greece containing contact information for selected programs and institutions. Interested students may view the guide online or come to the Center office to browse through our summer program files, some of which include reports by former participants in summer study programs.
Before applying to the Center for Hellenic Studies for fellowship support, students are required to explore other sources of support, including departmental funds, as well as the Graduate School and PIIRS. Applicants for Hellenic Studies support are required to complete the Graduate School’s common application form in addition to our own application form below. Please be sure to indicate Hellenic Studies as a possible source of funding when applying for Graduate School and PIIRS funding. We will not accept applications from individuals who have not applied for other sources of funding.
Applicants should refer to Financing Study in the Mediterranean. Every effort is made to make our funds go as far as possible. Hence, support is limited to the least expensive airfare, tuition costs (if applicable), and a modest contribution towards the cost of living and traveling abroad. The Committee does not normally make more than two awards to the same individual within any four-year period.
Applicants must complete the online application form. You must have Acrobat Reader, available for free download from Adobe, to view this form. Complete the application form in Acrobat Reader, print it, and then mail it with all the supporting materials to the address below. If you have questions about the application procedure, please contact Chris Twiname, ctwiname@Princeton.edu, Stanley J. Seeger '52 Center for Hellenic Studies, 106 Scheide Caldwell House, (609) 258-7588.
