|William M. Calder III Fellowship
Each year American Friends of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation awards one William M. Calder III Fellowship to a young, highly qualified German Feodor Lynen Fellow or US Humboldt Research Fellow to pursue research that relates to classical antiquity or to its reception in medievel and modern times.
A generous gift from William M. Calder III, William Abbott Oldfather Professor of the Classics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a recipient of the Humboldt Research Award in 1997, allowed American Friends to create the Calder Fellowship.
The Calder Fellowship is intended to complement the Humboldt Foundation's Feodor Lynen Fellowship or Humboldt Research Fellowship and is awarded for a total of up to 12 months. The Calder Fellowship begins in August or as soon thereafter as the selected recipient begins his or her Fellowship. It is not retroactive. A Calder Fellow who receives an extension of his or her Lynen Fellowship may apply for an extension of the Calder Fellowship.
The Selection Committee meets in late summer or fall and considers all scholars in the classics approved by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation for a Feodor Lynen Fellowship or Humboldt Research Fellowship within the previous 12 months.
