The Gerda Henkel Stiftung, a private German foundation that supports historical research, in close collaboration with the Department of Classics at Brown, provides an opportunity every second year for a senior classicist in a German-speaking country to carry on academic research at Brown for an academic year. The overall goal of this new fellowship is to promote a fruitful academic exchange between outstanding scholars in the humanities in the U.S. and in German-speaking countries. For more information about the fellowship, please see http://www.gerda-henkel-stiftung.de/content.php?nav_id=196&language=en. Applications should be sent directly to the Henkel Foundation, where further inquiries about the program may also be addressed to
