Kithara player on red figure vaseThis page lists awards, scholarships, and fellowships that are granted by national and regional classics and ancient studies societies and associations, both large and small, based in the US; opportunities from independent research institutions; and grants from mutual aid groups. Included are also some fellowships offered by humanities organizations such as the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS). But this page does not include scholarships and fellowships offered by colleges and universities for undergraduate study, graduate programs or postdoctoral research.

This page is a work in progress in every sense and we welcome submissions of awards (email info@classicalstudies.org). Many thanks to Jennifer Ranck for the most recent round of revisions. We will continue to add, improve categorization, and restructure as necessary.
