Scholarships are available to researchers worldwide to support a 1-2 month visit to Athens, Greece for research into topics relevant to Greece or Hellenism.
The École Française d’Athènes (EFA – French School of Athens), part of the Écoles françaises à l’étranger (EFE – French Schools Abroad) network, is an institute in Athens, Greece that for the study of Hellenism and the geographical areas where it has spread, from its origins to the current period. EFA provides an opportunity for specialists in this area to exchange ideas on relevant topics. The School includes a research centre, a library, an editor, an archive, a high-end technology park, a digital ecosystem and an international hosting centre.
Each year, EFA offers grants to enable short visits to the School. The grants are targeted at doctoral students whose research requires travelling to Greece. The research undertaken must be relevant to one of the following fields:
- Aegean prehistory or protohistory.
- Ancient Hellenic world.
- Hellenic world (and potentially the Balkans) in mediaeval, modern and contemporary times.
The project must represent a specific, argued work with research that can be completed during the allocated time (1-2 months). Research must involve use of the library in Athens and/or be relevant to the area and/or require a visit to one of the sites where EFA scientific activities are undertaken.
During their stay, grantees will have free and permanent access to the EFA library. They may also, if their research requires it and subject to available lodgement in excavation houses, undertake a visit to one of the two archaeological sites where EFA is active.
