Fellowships Offered in Each Cycle

All-Discipline Fellowships

Open to Project Requests from all disciplines in each competition cycle.

Special Requirements:
  • Each scholar must submit an application and letter of recommendation from their home institution.

  • Cohorts can be of any size, but a clear justification needs to be outlined in the project request.
  • Scholars in a cohort can be from different home institutions. 

Flexible Fellowship

With this option, fellows visit the host institution(s) twice to work on one project.

Special Requirements:

  • Projects request should include clear justification for the flexible fellowship model as well as workplans for the time between visits.
  • Each visit of the flexible fellowship should be at least 14 days, and the combined length of both visits should not exceed 90 days.
  • The GDFP will cover costs for the fellow's first flight to/from Greece; however, the host institution or scholar’s home institution are required to fund airfare for the second visit.
  • The Letter(s) of Support from the hosting institution or Letter of Reference from the scholar’s institution should note that the project visit will be conducted over two visits to Greece. The institution covering the costs of the second flight should also note this in their letter.
