The Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL) Fellowship

The Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL) Fellowship

Supported by a Generous Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The Society for Classical Studies invites applications for a one-year Fellowship, tenable from July 2024 through June 2025, that will allow an American scholar to conduct lexicographical research at the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL) Institute in Munich. Fellows at the TLL develop a broadened perspective of the range and complexity of the Latin language and culture from the classical period through the early Middle Ages, contribute signed articles to the Thesaurus, have the opportunity to participate in a collaborative international research project in a collegial environment, and work with senior scholars in the field of Latin lexicography.

The Fellowship carries a stipend in the amount of $60,000, and is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Before leaving for Munich, fellows receive up to $1,850 in additional funds to support training in Latin lexicography and (if necessary) German. Thanks to the Friends of George Goold Fund in the SCS’s Endowment for Classics Research and Teaching, Fellows may also request reimbursement of travel expenses for two return trips between North America and Munich, to enable the Fellow to take up the fellowship and to attend the annual SCS meeting. In certain instances the TLL Fellowship Advisory Board may also authorize Goold Fund support for other research activities of a Fellow. The incumbent Fellow may re-apply for a second year, but all applications will be judged on an equal footing.

Applications must be received by the deadline of Friday, December 1, 2023, at 11:59p.m., Eastern Time.
