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 Greece and, in addition to his or her studies and in consultation with the Director, will participate in the Institute’s events and activities and contribute to the academic and social life of the Institute. 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, but preference will be given to a candidate working in the field of Classical to Hellenistic Greek sculpture.
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 Neda and Franz Leipen Fellowship.
The Fellow will receive a stipend of CAD$10,500 and free accommodation at the CIG 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 2025-2026 academic year.
