The Byzantine Studies program at Dumbarton Oaks, since its establishment in 1940, has supported a continuous program of residential fellowships to enable historical, philological, art historical, archaeological, and theological research into the civilization of the Byzantine Empire and its interactions with neighboring cultures.
Dumbarton Oaks offers residential fellowships in Byzantine Studies for the academic year, a single term, and for the summer term. Fellowships are for scholars who hold a doctorate or appropriate final degree or have established themselves in their field and wish to pursue their own research; Junior Fellowships are for degree candidates who at the time of application have fulfilled all preliminary requirements for a PhD or appropriate final degree and will be working on their written dissertation at Dumbarton Oaks under the direction of a faculty member at their own university.
Lists of current and former Fellows, Junior Fellows, and Visiting Scholars and their research topics are available by year in the left-hand menu. For information about applying for a fellowship or short-term residency, see here.
