The NEH Fellowship program at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens promotes and facilitates the study of the humanities in the United States by providing opportunities for American-based, post-doctoral scholars to pursue research projects in humanistic disciplines relating to Greece. Access to world-class libraries, archaeological sites, museums, storerooms, excavation records, and archival collections along with the creative and intellectual energy that results from engagement in a dynamic academic community, makes the American School an ideal place for conducting such research. The publication and presentation of this research in scholarly venues, public lectures, on-line platforms, and classrooms at all levels back in the United States add new ideas and approaches to the body of knowledge that emanates from, responds to, and offers historiographic critique of Greek ideas that inform the humanistic disciplines.
