Classics Major (‘22) awarded a Mellon Fellowship for study at Cambridge

April 27, 2022

The Yale Classics Department is pleased to announce that Claire Saint-Amour, a senior major (Yale Classics, 2022), has been awarded a Paul Mellon Fellowship for study at Clare College, Cambridge, for the academic year 2022-3.  At Cambridge, Claire will pursue an MPhil in Classics, attending research skills seminars and seminars on special topics, and she will work one-on-one with a faculty advisor who will guide her in developing and writing an MPhil thesis.  The project that Claire plans to pursue is tentatively titled “Buried Texts: Autochthony and Authority in Greece, Rome, and Mesopotamia.” The Mellon Fellowship covers room, board, tuition, a round-trip to Cambridge and back, and a generous travel stipend.  An outstanding achievement, well deserved!
