Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection offers Junior Fellowships in three areas of study: Byzantine Studies (including related aspects of late Roman, early Christian, Western medieval, Slavic, and Near Eastern studies), Pre-Columbian Studies (of Mexico, Central America, and Andean South America), and Garden and Landscape Studies.
Junior fellowships are for degree candidates who at the time of application have fulfilled all preliminary requirements for a PhD (or appropriate final degree) and will be working on a dissertation or final project at Dumbarton Oaks under the direction of a faculty member at their own university.
Support includes a stipend of $14,825 for the full academic year; plus a housing allowance of $2,025 (if needed) to assist with the cost of bringing and maintaining dependents here; a research expense allowance of $1,000 for the year; lunch on weekdays; and Dumbarton Oaks’s contribution to health insurance. Travel expense reimbursement for the lowest available airfare, up to a maximum of $1,300, may be provided if support cannot be obtained from other sources (such as a Fulbright travel grant).
See the Dumbarton Oaks’ fellowship page for more information. Deadline for applications is November 1, 2007.
