Scholarships and Travel Grants

We understand that excavating can be a costly endeavor for students so we are happy to announce a number of scholarships and travel grants are now available for students wishing to excavate at Tel Azekah!

American Schools of Oriental Research

In the summer of 2007, ASOR renewed its emphasis on providing funding scholarships that enable individuals to participate in excavations in the Eastern Mediterranean and by awarding grants to support the excavation projects themselves. Since 2007, ASOR has awarded more than $850,000 to 670 researchers, members and students with excavation grants, dig fellowships, travel scholarships, and other research fellowships through the Dever, Gold, Harris, Heritage, MacAllister, Member-Supported, Meyers, Meyers/Wright, Platt, Seger, Sheeler, and Strange/Midkiff Funds, Mesopotamian Fellowship, Annual Meeting Scholarships, and the Study of Collections Fellowships.
