CHS – CCS Fellowships

Since 2008, CHS has generously supported the Harvard Summer Program in Greece, by offering two research fellowships to junior faculty members–Adjunct Lecturers, Lecturers, Assistant Professors–of Schools of Humanities and Social Sciences from Greek Universities.

 

About the program

The fellows participate in the program by presenting their research and interacting with colleagues and students from the U.S. and all around the world, while the team exchanges experiences and ideas about their different educational systems.

The fellowships aim to attract applicants with an academic background strongly related with the disciplines of Comparative Cultural Studies, the academic core of this program. CHS gives preference to those whose application and cover letter suggests that they would be comfortable working in an intimate, international, multilingual community of scholars. Former experience in similar academic programs/activities in Greece or abroad will be highly appreciated.

The fellowship includes:

  • CHS - CCS Fellow 2013

    Year-long appointment as CHS Fellow in Comparative Cultural Studies in Greece.

  • Year-long access to all Harvard electronic resources. The fellow will receive an ID and HarvardKey to have access to all digital libraries, available through the Harvard University library system.

  • A week-long stay in Nafplio or in Thessaloniki in July 2017 (dates to be determined). The fellow will join the summer program and interact with the students and the faculty. She/he will attend all seminars taught during that week and address a lecture to the students on her/his area of interest. The Center covers accommodation, transportation, breakfast and dinner, during the fellow’s stay with the program in summer, and offers a stipend aiming to cover additional expenses.

 

Collaborating Educational Institutions

In the past years, fellows came primarily from the Universities of Patras and Ioannina. Since 2016, CHS opened applications to all Humanities and Social Sciences Schools in Higher Education in Greece.
