The Mary Isabel Sibley Fellowship
The deadline for submission has passed for the 2016 Sibley Fellowship in French Studies.
The deadline for application for the 2017 Sibley Fellowship in Greek Studies is January 15, 2017.
The annual Mary Isabel Sibley Fellowship is awarded alternately in the fields of Greek and French. The award may be used for the study of Greek language, literature, history, or archaeology, or the study of French language or literature. For 2017, the Sibley Fellowship is for the study of Greek Studies.
Candidates must be unmarried women 25 to 35 years of age who have demonstrated their ability to carry on original research. They must hold a doctorate or have fulfilled all the requirements for a doctorate except the dissertation, and they must be planning to devote full-time work to research during the fellowship year. The award is not restricted to members of Phi Beta Kappa or to U.S. citizens.
The fellowship carries a stipend of $20,000. The stipend will be paid in two installments, the first on July 1 of the award year and the second on the next January 1, unless the Fellowship Committee orders the stipend withheld because the fellow has disregarded the purpose of the award as stated by the donor.
Periodic progress reports from the fellow will be welcomed, and it is the hope of the Fellowship Committee that the results of the year of research will be printed in some form. Sibley Fellowship Winners
