Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies, Washington DC (“CHS US”) with the support of Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece (“CHS Greece”) grants research fellowships to junior faculty members (Adjunct Lecturers, Lecturers or Assistant Professors), and Scientific and Laboratory Teaching Staff who hold a PhD ("ΕΔΙΠ" and "ΕΕΠ") of Greek Universities (Schools of Humanities and Social Sciences) to join the CHS community as CHS Fellows in Comparative Cultural Studies in Greece ("CHS-CCS Fellows").
The following describes the terms and conditions, benefits and expectations, of your fellowship. Τhis is a fellowship organized and offered by CHS US with administrative and logistical support from CHS Greece. As you are already informed, since the Harvard Summer School Program 2020 was suspended, CHS, aiming to continue supporting researchers from Greek Universities for this year, provides this fellowship appointment in a new template for 2020 and on terms differentiated from the ones initially announced.
Fellowship parameters. The duration of your fellowship will be 12 months, during which time you will be a CHS Fellow in Comparative Cultural Studies in Greece: from September 1, 2020 to August 31, 2021.

Under some circumstances, you may hold a fellowship appointment at another institution concurrently with your CHS Fellowship.

You are asked to notify CHS about other fellowship appointments at least one month in advance (before the official starting date of the new fellowship). Additionally, you may only hold one CHS fellowship appointment at a time.
