THE WARBURG Institute is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of the classical tradition - in the sense ofthose elements in European thought, art and institutions that have evolved out of the cultures of the ancient world.

Its library and photographic collection are designed and arranged to encourage research into the processes by which one culture learns from another and by which different fields of thought and art act on each other. They are particularly concerned with continuities between the ancient Mediterranean civilisations and the cultural and intellectual history of post-classical Europe, especially in the period to c.1800. The Institute has been added to the list of institutions where short study stays financed by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation can take place in 2008/2009. Eligible candidates should have achieved a doctorate or have equivalent experience. Candidates should preferably be younger than 40 and be applying for a Mellon Foundation grant for the first time.

The stipend is for $11,500 and is intended to cover all costs of the study stay. Applications should be sent to the director of the Warburg Institute, and should consist of the following documents: CV; proposed research programme (up to 2 pages); details of any other grants the applicant has received to study the same subject; contact information for two or three people who will send letters of recommendation directly to the Institute's director; and samples of the applicant's published work.
