This summer, I had the opportunity to experience modern monastic life in a Byzantine Monastery, visit a number of historical sites of interest, work on my research, and most of all, improve my modern Greek abilities.

This year the Stanley J. Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies generously funded my trip to Thessaloniki and Serres to participate in this year’s Mt. Menoikeion seminar…I cannot thank Hellenic Studies enough for offering this wonderful experience to both undergraduate and graduate students at Princeton.
Richard Calis, Graduate Student, History
Thanks for your long-term support of my exploration of ancient Greek literature and philosophy...In particular, I would like to express my gratitude to your generous sponsorship of my participation in the summer ancient philosophy reading group in June 2017 in Syros.
Jiani Fan, Graduate Student, Comparative Literature
The generous funding I received as a Stanley J. Seeger fellow...enabled me to join the excavations run by Clemente Marconi of NYU’s Institute of Fine Arts at Selinunte, Sicily…Visiting these sites and working at Selinunte allowed me to familiarize myself in depth with Greek architecture and early Greek settlements in Sicily.
Hannah Smagh, Graduate Student, Art and Archaeology
Thanks to the generosity of the Stanley J. Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies I had the chance to do research in Athens and Naxos from July 27 to August 7. During this time, I could visit several archaeological sites and museums, and get to know the geographical context of the archaeological remains… This offers the possibility of an interesting new line of investigation.
