The Loeb Classical Library Foundation awards fellowships to qualified scholars to support research, publication, and other projects in the area of classical studies. Fellowships will normally range from $1,000 to$35,000, and may occasionally exceed that limit in the case of unusually interesting and promising projects.

Applicants must have faculty or faculty emeritus status at a college or university at the time of application and during the entire time covered by the fellowship.

Fellowships may be used for a wide variety of purposes. Examples include publication of research, enhancement of sabbaticals, travel to libraries or collections, dramatic productions, excavation expenses, or cost of research materials. Individual fellowship requests may be only partially funded. In exceptional circumstances a fellowship may be extended or renewed, but a new application in must be submitted in a regular application cycle in order to obtain additional funding. A special selection committee will choose the persons to whom fellowships are to be awarded and recommend the amount of the fellowships.
