CHS Fellowships in collaboration with AUTH’s Department of Classics

In support of collaborative projects and academic cooperations with Greek Institutions, CHS has developed a partnership with Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Faculty of Philosophy, School of Philology, Department of Classics. This collaboration focuses on research in the Humanities, specifically Ancient Greek literature and language, through Joint Research Fellowships to young PhD holders from AUTH’s Department of Classics. The program enables them to cooperate as Research Fellows with CHS and Aristotle University and continue or return to research in the field of Classics.This program offers up to three Fellowships, every year, to PhD holders from AUTH’s Department of Classics, who received their doctorate degree no more than five years before the announcement of each annual program cycle. The duration of each Fellowship appointment will be 12 months during which the Fellow will complete a semester-long research project.

The Fellowship includes:

  • Year-long appointment as CHS-AUTH Fellow in Hellenic Studies.

  • Year-long access to Harvard University’s online databases and resources and to AUTH’s library system.

  • A week-long educational trip to CHS in Washington DC, organized by CHS, to share their findings and collaborate with other Fellows and members of the CHS academic community following the completion of the research project in October.

  • Invitation to pre-publish the outcomes of their research in one of CHS E-Journals.

  • Invitation to attend the annual CHS-International Olympic Academy (“IOA”) Scholars Symposium in Ancient Olympia.

  • Organization of events in order for the Fellows to present their research to students (graduate and undergraduate) of AUTH’s Department of Classics.
