We are a non-profit organization dedicated to hosting visual artists and curators from all parts of the world to live and create in Athens, Greece—thereby facilitating a diverse influx of expression, production, and learning in a city brimming with creative energy.

Our mission is to create a foundational presence in the city of Athens that supports and promotes growth in the visual arts community through a comprehensive artist residency program that will enrich artists and communities on both the local and the international levels.

Our program is designed to fully support artists during their residency by providing the time, space and resources needed to create freely while immersed in a new environment, community and culture—potentially integrating elements of that experience into their art.

Details coming soon.

Asia Minor and Pontos Hellenic Research Center

The Asia Minor and Pontos Hellenic Research Center (AMPHRC) announces funds to support original research on the study of Hellenism in Asia Minor, Eastern Thrace, and Pontos,  including the destruction of Greek communities in the early twentieth century by two consecutive Turkish regimes. The availability of these funds is made possible due to a special arrangement between the Ivan Savvidis Foundation Scholarship Fund and the AMPHRC.

Since its founding, the AMPHRC has been dedicated to expanding the knowledge of contemporary scholars, and informing the public at large about the history and genocide of Greeks in Anatolia. The AMPHRC has sponsored several international conferences in Chicago and New York, established an office and research library, has created a curriculum for high school use, and published several books.

We invite original research proposals from qualified individuals (recent PhDs, PhD students, postdoctoral and senior scholars). The Center is particularly interested in the period approximately between 1821 to 1924. We are interested in subjects such as, e.g., the social, political and economic life of Greeks in the Ottoman Empire, the policy of Greece regarding the Greeks of Asia Minor, the genocide, and the Greek Diaspora.

The University of Cincinnati Classics Department is pleased to offer two types of fellowships for study and research in the fields of philology, history, or archaeology at the John Miller Burnam Classics Library: Tytus Fellowships during the academic year, and Cincinnati Summer Residencies from May to August.

See our webpage for access to further information on each program and to online application forms.

Senior scholars are invited to apply for the Margo Tytus Visiting Scholars Program . Applicants for this program will ordinarily be a minimum of five years beyond receipt of the Ph.D., with notable publication histories. Tytus Scholars are expected to be in residence at the University of Cincinnati for a minimum of one semester (ca. four months) and a maximum of two during the regular academic year; see UC Academic Calendar. In exceptional circumstances, Tytus Scholars may be appointed for a shorter term (one to two months) during the regular academic year. Tytus Scholars will receive a monthly stipend of $1,500 plus housing near campus and a transportation allowance, as well as office space attached to the Burnam Classics Library.

More recent PhDs and other scholars who would benefit from the use of a world-class classics library are invited to apply for the Cincinnati Summer Residency program. Applicants for this program will have their Ph.D. in hand by the time of application, and will ordinarily be in residence at the University of Cincinnati for approximately two months in the summer terms, May to mid-August; see UC Academic Calendar. Cincinnati Summer Residents will receive housing near campus and office space attached to the Burnam Classics Library. Residents are not eligible for a stipend or travel reimbursement.

Apart from residence in Cincinnati for the term of the relevant fellowship, the only obligation of participants in either program is to pursue their own research. They will also have access to the Klau Library at neighboring Hebrew Union College. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate a need for resources peculiar to the Burnam Classics Library or Department of Classics archives, and have not previously been able to access them. For Cincinnati Summer Residents, special consideration will be given to scholars without access to a research library through their home institutions.

The deadline for both fellowships is February 1.

The University of Cincinnati Burnam Classics Library is one of the world's premier collections in the field of Classical Studies. Comprising 269,000 volumes and a wide range of electronic resources, the library covers all aspects of the Classics: languages and literatures, history, civilization, art, and archaeology. Of special value for scholars is both the richness of the collection and its accessibility; almost any avenue of research in the classics or the post-classical Greek world can be pursued deeply and broadly under a single roof. The unusually comprehensive core collection, maintained by professional classicist librarians, is augmented by several special collections, including 15,000 nineteenth century German Programmschriften, plus extensive holdings in Palaeography, Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies. At neighboring Hebrew Union College is the  Klau Library, with holdings in excess of 445,000 volumes, rich in Judaica and Near Eastern Studies.

Sylvia Ioannou Foundation Scholarships Programme for the Academic Year 2020-21

Scholarships offered to Greek and Cypriot university graduates for postgraduate and doctoral studies on topics related to the island of Cyprus.

The Sylvia Ioannou Scholarship Programme is one of the Foundation’s top priorities. Its aim is to support young scientists and students from Cyprus and Greece who wish to undertake postgraduate studies (Masters or PhD) in any field of study, but with Cyprus as the objective of their dissertation. The prerequisite therefore is that the island of Cyprus is the main topic of the postgraduate thesis or doctoral dissertation, regardless of subject matter. It could, for example, be related to the history, geography, culture or society of Cyprus.

The scholarships are intended for Greek and Cypriot graduates of Greek or Cypriot Universities with a degree of at least eight (8) and aged up to 33 years.

The scholarship provides financial support in the form of a fixed amount, irrespective of tuition or university, and is renewable annually for a maximum duration of three (3) years. The number of scholarships and the amount available per year depends on the number of applicants and the funding offered each year by the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation.

Candidates who are already Masters or PhD students may apply for a scholarship, given that they fulfil the requirements set out in the Terms & Procedure section. Scholars may look for additional sources of funding for their studies.

Applications for the new scholarship programme for the academic year 2020-2021 can be submitted beginning on 1st March 2020. This is the 8th consecutive year that the scholarship programme is being offered.

The deadline for the submission of applications is on the 30th of April 2020 and the results will be announced after 15th July 2020.

The detailed terms and procedures are available here.

The Board of Directors of the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation wishes all candidates success!

McGill University, Modern Greek History

We would like to inform potentially interested candidates of the possibilities of graduate research work (M.A. thesis and non-thesis, Ph.d. degrees in History) in relation with the Modern Greek studies at McGill University.

The Modern Greek studies program at McGill functions within the History and Classical studies department and the admission process as well as the degrees pursued would be in History. For general information on this subject see here.

The Program is currently involved in a series of collective research programs and has secured research funding from various sources (the French national research agency, the Quebec and Canada research agencies). Therefore, we welcome applications, in particular but not exclusively, from candidates wishing to work on one or more of the following research topics relevant to the Program's current research agenda.

Students of Greek citizenship can benefit from the following:

Knowledge of the French language would be a considerable asset as it would allow for a smoother integration in both Montreal and the research partnerships. 

Ph.d. candidates will be trained in order to pass the French School of Athens post-doctoral researcher exam.

Ph.d. candidates can request the establishment of a joint Ph.d. degree convention between McGill and any French University thanks  to the France/Quebec cotutelle agreement and thus obtain a joint Ph.d degree from both Universities.
