Loeb Classical Library Foundation Fellowships

The Loeb Classical Library Foundation awards fellowships to qualified scholars to support research, publication, and other projects in the area of classical studies. Fellowships will normally range from $1,000 to $35,000, and may occasionally exceed that limit in the case of unusually interesting and promising projects.

Fellowships may be used for a wide variety of purposes. Examples include publication of research, enhancement of sabbaticals, travel to libraries or collections, dramatic productions, excavation expenses, or cost of research materials. Individual fellowship requests may be only partially funded. In exceptional circumstances a fellowship may be extended or renewed, but a new application must be submitted in a regular application cycle in order to obtain additional funding. A special selection committee will choose the persons to whom fellowships are to be awarded and recommend the amount of the fellowships.

General Explanation of Funding

Grants may not be deferred to subsequent academic years. Multi-year applications can only be funded for one year at a time. Future applications are welcome, but funding is not guaranteed. If receiving salary support, total salary and awards from all sources are not to exceed 100% of grantee's annual salary for 2017–18; if receiving support for other purposes, the total LCLF grant and awards from all sources are not to exceed the grantee’s proposed budget. LCLF awards exceeding these limits will be reduced accordingly. Please note that we do NOT cover indirect costs (e.g. insurance, retirement contributions, taxes, etc.).


Applicants must have faculty or faculty emeritus status at a college or university at the time of application and during the entire time covered by the fellowship.

No more than three consecutive fellowships, or more than three fellowships over any five-year period, will be awarded. Three years must elapse between applications for salary enhancement after receiving a LCLF fellowship for that purpose.
