The Cornell Department of Classics is pleased to invite applications to a new Bridge MA program, which is intended to support talented young scholars in Classics and to enhance the diversity of the discipline. We plan to admit one student per year to the program with full fellowship support. This fellow will have the opportunity to work closely with faculty and doctoral students in Classics, while simultaneously developing a program of independent research. The fellowship is specifically tailored for students with a bachelor’s degree or equivalent who may wish to pursue doctoral study in Classics or a related discipline. Applications from current seniors scheduled to graduate in the spring are most welcome, as are those from recent graduates. The deadline for the first round of applications is March 1, 2021.
The program will offer two summers and two semesters of funding, with a summer matriculation (June 1). Housing on campus will be provided for the first summer (June 1-August 15). Students who demonstrate exceptional potential for doctoral study may be invited to transfer to the PhD program upon completion of the second semester.
