*The deadline for submission is January 15, 2018 for the Sibley Fellowship for French Studies. 


The Mary Isabel Sibley Fellowship is awarded annually, alternating 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. Established in 1934 by Isabelle Stone (ΦΒΚ, Wellesley College) in honor of her mother, Mary Isabel Sibley, the fellowship was designed to reward the women in these two fields of study with the experience of studying and living abroad, which Miss Stone did in Greece during her studies. The fellowship carries a stipend of $20,000.

The 2018 Sibley Fellowship will be for French studies.


Eligibility Requirements: 

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.

*When creating the Sibley Fellowship in 1934, the original donor Isabelle Stone intended to provide a progressive doctoral scholarship for women. The Society can not legally change the criteria for the fellowship at this time. 

Fellowship Information: 

The fellowship carries a stipend of $20,000, which 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 Awards 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 Awards Committee that the results of the year of research will be published in some form.
