Funding the Lexicon

The Greek Lexicon Project was first established with the help of a donation by John Chadwick, from his 1997 award of the Antonio Feltrinelli prize. (This is Italy's highest scientific and cultural award, given annually to a foreigner for achievements in the sciences or humanities. Sometimes known as 'the Italian Nobels', it is administered by the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, Rome.)

Since then, we have depended on external research funding and the very generous support of individual benefactors and academic and charitable organisations. We are now entering the final phase, with publication envisaged in late 2018. The Faculty of Classics has guaranteed the continuation of the project through to that date.

Any enquiries concerning the progress and organisation of the project should be addressed to Professor James Clackson ().

To make a donation
You may make a donation to the Greek Lexicon Project online or by cheque.

  • Online via the Faculty’s donation page. Follow the link there to the University’s Online Giving site and specify Cambridge New Greek Lexicon. It is important that you also inform the Classics Faculty’s Accounts Clerk that you have made a donation, so that your gift can be easily traced.
  • By cheque payable to Cambridge University sent to The Accounts Clerk, Faculty of Classics, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge CB3 9DA, with a note that it is for the New Greek Lexicon.

To request a Gift Aid form, or for any other help with making a donation, please contact the Accounts Clerk (details above).

Institutional Benefactors

In October 2006, we also received a major award from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. This was used to fund the salaries of two of our writers for three years, and so has provided a great boost in helping us towards our target date.

In 2011, the Lexicon Project was delighted to receive a grant of $296,000 from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation towards the completion of its work.
