The Committee in charge of the competition for the Charles Eliot Norton Fellowship in Greek Studies announce the following rules and regulations which will govern the competition for the year 1915-16.
The Fellowship, which carries an annual income of $800 and is open to undergraduates and graduates of the University and of Radcliffe College, was established by James Loeb '88 as an expression of his respect for Professor Norton, and in recognition of Professor Norton's eminent services to Classical Archaeology.
The award will be made on the basis of a thesis on a subject approved by a committee appointed by the Department of Classics, and of such evidence of scholarship as may be accessible. In special circumstances the committee may, at its discretion, dispense with the requirements of the thesis. In the award no account is to be taken of the financial means of the competitor; and no award will be made in case the theses offered are not of sufficient merit. Applications for admission to candidacy must be made to the chairman of the Department of Classics, Professor C. H. Moore, 112 Brattle street, not later than December 1, 1914, and the theses of approved candidates must be presented to the chairman not later than February 15, 1915. The incumbent of the Fellowship must agree to pursue his studies for the year of his incumbancy at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. The following subjects for theses have been proposed by the committee; candidates may, however, with the consent of the committee, write on other classical subjects:
