Travel Grants Available for Students Studying Ancient World

NYU’s Center for Ancient Studies is once again offering grants for summer or term-time study through its Antonina S. Ranieri International Scholars Fund. These grants are intended to support academic travel abroad by Arts and Science undergraduate or graduate students who are studying any aspect of the ancient world. Grants are generally under $1,500 and may be taken in conjunction with other awards. The Ranieri Fund supports both independent study (e.g., research in foreign libraries) and participation in formal programs (e.g., Goethe Institute language courses, archaeological digs, and international conferences).

Students should submit a brief description of their project explaining how it relates to their studies, an itemized budget, CV, and detailed letter of support from an FAS faculty sponsor. APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23, 2011 for this summer or the next academic year. Decisions will be made by the Advisory Committee of the Center, and winners will be notified of their decision on or about Friday, April 29.

For more information or to submit an application, email Dean Matthew Santirocco at
