The University of Cincinnati Classics Department is pleased to offer Cincinnati Summer Residencies for study and research in the fields of philology, history, or archaeology at the John Miller Burnam Classics Library. Preference will be given to those who have not previously been able to use the resources of the Burnam Classics Library, as well as to those who do not have access to a research library through their home institutions. Our visiting scholars are expected to be in residence at the University of Cincinnati for approximately two or three months in the summer term, which runs from early May through mid-August; see UC Academic Calendar. Shorter residencies are possible, but preference is given to those who plan to use these resources for at least a month.

Apart from residence in Cincinnati, the only obligation of Summer Residents is to pursue their own research and enjoy the use of the University of Cincinnati and Hebrew Union College Libraries. They will receive housing in a furnished apartment near campus, office space in the Burnam Classics Library, and some financial support for travel; there is no stipend available for summer residencies.

There is a separate Tytus Visiting Scholars Program for more senior scholars wishing to do research in Cincinnati during the academic year.

The application period for 2023 is closed. We will post a link to the 2024 application in the Fall.

Application Deadline: March 15 of each year. Applicants must have the Ph.D. in hand at the time of application. Please apply online.
