Through a generous gift from The Foundation for Biblical Archaeology, eight Student Service Scholarships of $500 each will be offered for transportation and hotel costs incurred while attending ASOR's 2013 Annual Meeting in Baltimore.
Eligibility: Students must be members of ASOR (either undergraduates or graduate) or be enrolled at an ASOR-member school. Scholarship recipients will provide up to 18 hours of service at the Annual Meeting, arranged to accommodate the sessions they would like to attend. Duties will involve assisting with registration, helping Session Chairs with audiovisual needs during the sessions, and aiding Program Committee members with other set-up and arrangement needs. Students must also attend an orientation session on Wednesday, November 20 at 3:00pm at the Sheraton Baltimore City Center Hotel.
Application: Interested individuals should send a curriculum vitae and a letter of interest to Britta Abeln in the ASOR office. The letter should summarize how the applicant will benefit from attending the Annual Meeting. A budget of projected expenses should be included as well as one letter of recommendation. Applications will be accepted through June 30, 2013 (the deadline has been extended to August 1, 2013), and notification of decisions on grant awards will be made by July 15, 2013 (the decision deadline has been extended to August 15th).
