The University of Cincinnati Classics Department is pleased to offer the Margo Tytus Visiting Scholars Program, for study and research in the fields of philology, history, or archaeology at the John Miller Burnam Classics Library. Apart from residence in Cincinnati for the term of the relevant fellowship, the only obligation of Tytus Scholars is to pursue their own research. They will also be able to access the Klau Library at neigboring Hebrew Union College. Applicants for the Margo Tytus Visiting Scholars Program will ordinarily be senior scholars (at least five years beyond receipt of the Ph.D.) of some standing. The program's criteria favor scholars with notable publication histories, in fields of interest to department faculty and current graduate students. Preference will be given to those who have not previously been able to use the resources of the Burnam Classics Library.

Tytus scholars are expected to be in residence at the University of Cincinnati for a minimum of one semester and a maximum of two during the regular academic year; Fall semester is approximately from 1 September to the December break, Spring from January to April; see the UC Academic Calendar.

In exceptional circumstances, Tytus Scholars may be appointed for a shorter term (one to two months) during the regular academic year.
Tytus Scholars will receive a monthly stipend of $1500 plus housing near campus and a transportation allowance, as well as office space attached to the Burnam Classics Library.

There is also a Summer Residency Program offered separately, which is open to more recent Ph.Ds.

Application Deadline: February 1. Please apply online (below). Questions can be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., Director, Visiting Scholars Programs.
