NYU’s Center for Ancient Studies offers grants for summer or semester study through its endowed Antonina S. Ranieri International Scholars Fund. These grants are intended to support academic travel abroad by Arts and Science undergraduate or graduate students in any department or program who are studying any aspect of the ancient world. Since the Fund's inception, over 200 students (roughly half undergraduate and half graduate) have received $275,000 in support for projects.
Grants are generally under $2,000 and may be taken in conjunction with other awards. The Ranieri Fund supports both independent study (e.g., research in foreign libraries and museums) and participation in formal programs (e.g., Goethe Institut language courses, archaeological digs, and international conferences). Students who will have graduated before the proposed travel abroad takes place are not eligible for the grants. The grant process opens each year at the beginning of March and the grants are awarded at the beginning of May.
