CAARI FELLOWSHIPS FOR
ACADEMIC YEAR 2015-2016

The Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute (CAARI) in Nicosia, Cyprus offers an active fellowship program for both pre- and post-doctoral research. Fellowship opportunities include CAARI-sponsored fellowships as well as several fellowships sponsored by others, such as Fulbright research fellowships and CAORC multi-country fellowships. The CAARI Director and staff provide guidance to fellows on matters related to their research and on facilities available at CAARI and in Cyprus, and facilitate contacts with relevant local authorities and scholars. In addition to their research, fellows are required to give a lecture on their work, participate in roundtable discussions, and/or serve as featured speakers at CAARI symposia. The fellowships fall into two categories:

1) internal (CAARI-sponsored) and 
2) external (e.g., Fulbright, CAORC) awards.

Note that deadlines for all CAARI-sponsored fellowships is December 15, 2014; external fellowship deadlines vary.

GRADUATE STUDENT FELLOWSHIPS SPONSORED BY CAARI 
CAARI sponsors three fellowships for graduate students whose research requires work on Cyprus itself. Residence at CAARI is required for all graduate student fellowships.

THE DANIELLE PARKS MEMORIAL FELLOWSHIP: 
Danielle Parks, author of The Roman Coinage of Cyprus (Nicosia, 2004), directed excavations at the Amathus Gate Cemetery. She first came to Cyprus as an Anita Cecil O'Donovan Fellow. Her death as a young scholar in 2006, deeply felt by the wide circle of her colleagues and friends, is memorialized here by a fellowship designed to open the world of Cypriot culture to young scholars.

This is a fellowship of US $1,000 for a graduate student of any nationality who needs to work in Cyprus to further his/her research on a subject of relevance to Cypriot archaeology and culture. The purpose of the fellowship is to help cover travel to and living expenses in Cyprus. Applications are invited especially from students of Hellenistic and Roman Cyprus. During his/her stay, the fellow is expected to give a presentation at CAARI on a subject related to his/her research. The fellow will periodically keep the Director of CAARI apprised of his/her research activities. The fellow will acknowledge CAARI and the Danielle Parks Memorial Fellowship in any publication that emerges from the research carried during the fellowship. Residence at CAARI is required.

THE HELENA WYLDE SWINY AND STUART SWINY FELLOWSHIP: 
One grant of US $1,000 to a graduate student of any nationality in a college or university in the U.S. or Canada to pursue a research project that is relevant to an ongoing field project in Cyprus or that requires work on Cyprus itself. The award is to be used to fund research time spent in residence at CAARI and to help defray costs of travel. Residence at CAARI is required.

THE ANITA CECIL O'DONOVAN FELLOWSHIP: 
Founded in memory of musician, composer, and homemaker Anita Cecil O'Donovan, this fellowship offers one grant of US $1000 to a graduate student of any nationality, enrolled in a graduate program in any nation, to pursue research on a project relevant to the archaeology and/or culture of Cyprus; to be used to fund a period of research time in residence at CAARI and to help defray costs of travel.
