Student Honors

IPCAA graduate students regularly apply for, and receive, grants, fellowships, and prestigious awards, particularly during the later years of their graduate career. In addition to their regular studies, as part of the IPCAA cursus honorum, students are encouraged to deliver talks at conferences, and to publish articles and short notes in various peer-reviewed journals or in catalogues that accompany exhibitions at the Kelsey Museum.

The list of student accomplishments and honors is lengthy and impressive— external grants and fellowships awarded to IPCAA students include the Rome Prize of the American Academy in Rome; Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Humanistic Studies; Jacob K. Javits Fellowship; Getty Museum Graduate Internship; Regular Member Fellowships, American School of Classical Studies; State Department Fellowship, American Research Center in Egypt; Samuel H. Kress Fellowships, Oscar Broneer Travel Award, American School of Classical Studies; U.S Department of State and J. William Fulbright Awards; Woodruff Traveling Fellowship, Archaeological Institute of America — as well as a number of competitive fellowships awarded internally by the University of Michigan, including the Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship. The record of recent publications and conference talks is equally impressive.
