The Edward L. Ryerson Fellowship is awarded annually by the Ryerson Fellowship Committee to graduate students who are studying Greek and Roman art and archaeology.  Students may apply for travel/conference grants, pre-dissertation grants, or dissertation year completion fellowships.  In the absence of qualified candidates who are studying Greek and Roman art and archaeology, fellowship funds will be available to graduate students who are studying Near Eastern art and archaeology.
 
Applications for a Ryerson travel or conference grant should include:
2) a clear and concise statement of purpose
3) a budget specifying the expected cost of transportation and housing
4) a letter of support from the student's advisor (or a professor well-acquainted with the student's work and the proposed plan of research)
 
Proposals and faculty recommendation letters should be addressed to the Ryerson Fellowship Selection Committee.  The Office of the Dean of Students will add a current transcript to the application.
 
All application materials should be submitted electronically via email to humdos@uchicago.edu.
 
Award decisions are typically announced in early May.  At the completion of the fellowship, students are required to submit a short report to the Committee.
