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. Applicants for Cincinnati Summer Residencies will ordinarily be recent PhDs, scholars early in their careers, and/or those turning to new topics of research; Ph.D. must be in hand by the time of application. 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. They are expected to be in residence at the University of Cincinnati for approximately two months in the summer terms, 1 May to mid-August; see UC Academic Calendar.

In exceptional cases, one or three month residencies may be allowed. 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 a free housing in a furnished apartment near campus, and office space in the Burnam Classics Library, but no further funding.

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

Application Deadline: February 1. Applicants must have the Ph.D. in hand at the time of application. Please apply online (below).
