The Fondazione Centro Ricerche Studi e Documentazione Piero Sraffa offers a
fellowship of 7500 euros to foreign scholars interested in classical
economy and in Piero Sraffa scientific contribution. The fellowship entails
residence in Rome for a period of 5 months beginning 15 January 2005.
The fellowship is intended for scholars who are enrolled or about to enrol
a Ph.D. program. Applications are however welcome also from more experienced

addition to the winner of the fellowship the Centro will admit other
students who can fund their stay from a different source.
During their period of residence participants in the program will be
to conduct readings concerning the classical economists, their
Sraffa's contribution and later developments with respect both to the
of marginal theories and the revival of the classical approach. Short essays
will be written on assigned themes and discussed with supervisors
The scholarship will be paid in two instalments in January and April. Travel
expenses will be refunded upon arrival.
Candidates are asked to include with their applications, besides their
and e-mail addresses and telephone number: (i) a curriculum vitae; (ii) a
letter of support from a scholar well acquainted with the applicant's work;
(iii) a short description of the applicant's research interests and
or unpublished writings.
