The A. D. Trendall Fellowship was inaugurated in 2000. The Trendall Fellow is normally appointed in alternate years and is open to scholars from universities outside the UK. Preference will be given to applicants working in the same areas of interest as Professor Trendall, including ancient Italy and classical art history. The successful candidate is expected to spend a minimum of six weeks at the Institute and to deliver the Trendall Lecture. He or she is provided with a stipend of £5000 toward the cost of travel and accommodation.
The Trendall Fellow for 2015-16 was Professor Thomas Carpenter from Ohio University. He delivered the Trendall Lecture on 10 May 2016.
Applicants are encouraged to send to the Director (email@example.com) a CV, a short account of the research project they intend to pursue with the aid of the Fellowship, the subject of the lecture they would give, and the names and addresses of two referees. The deadline for applications will be 14 February 2018. Results are normally announced in April. Successful candidates are encouraged to lecture elsewhere in the UK if invited and some funds are available to make this possible.
