The Theodore N. Romanoff Prize is open to doctoral candidates (ABD) and recent Ph.D. recipients (degree granted between 2016-2020) conducting research on the language or historical texts of ancient Egypt, including the Coptic language as the final stage of historic Egyptian languages. American scholars worldwide and non-American scholars studying or teaching at an American university in the United States are eligible to apply. Research must be conducted in Egypt.

The Prize was created in tribute to Theodore Romanoff who received his M.A. from The Artemis A.W. and Martha Sharp Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University. His thesis concerned hieroglyphic writing; he additionally studied Demotic and Coptic with dedication and passion.

Applicants may apply for this funding as a stand-alone fellowship or combine it with other funding sources, including the ARCE CAORC or NEH-funded fellowships. One $4000 fellowship will be funded annually.
