Fellowships

The Center offers short-term fellowships (of one to four months duration) to support visitors pursuing post-doctoral research in Greek and Latin epigraphy and palaeography: The Arthur and Joyce Gordon Fellowship in Latin epigraphy; The Sterling and Elizabeth Dow Fellowship and The A. Geoffrey Woodhead Fellowship in Greek epigraphy and history; The Paul E. and Sandra J. Watkins Fellowship in Greek and Latin history and epigraphy; and the Virgina Brown Fellowship in Latin palaeography. The fellowships pay a stipend of $1,500 per month and recipients are expected to be in residence during the tenure of the award and are encouraged to participate in the activities of the University. Current students, faculty, and staff of the Ohio State University are not ordinarily considered for the award.

The Center's holdings include, in addition to a comprehensive library to support the study of Greek and Latin inscriptions, has a number of special collections. The focus of the Greek collection is Attica, but there are numerous squeezes from other sites.
