The applicant must be a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant, pursuing graduate or post-doctoral studies, and have a clear need to work in Greece.
The Fellow will spend at least nine months resident in Athens and, in addition to his or her studies, will provide ten hours of assistance weekly at the Canadian Institute in Greece in the office or library, as well as assisting at the public functions of CIG. Some previous experience in Greece and some knowledge of Modern Greek is an asset, although not a requirement.
The Fellow’s research focus may be any aspect of Hellenic studies, from ancient to mediaeval, and in any academic discipline.
In any subsequent publication of the research work done under the auspices of this fellowship, the recipient will acknowledge both the Canadian Institute in Greece and the Homer and Dorothy Thompson Fellowship.
The Fellow will receive a stipend of CAD$9,000 and free accommodation in the CIG hostel for the nine-month period of the fellowship (1 September to 31 May).
It is expected that this Fellowship will next be awarded for the 2022-2023 academic year.
