GRANTS FOR EXCAVATION PROJECTS

In the summer of 2007, ASOR renewed its emphasis on providing funding grants and fellowships that allow individuals to participate in excavations in the Eastern Mediterranean. Since 2007, ASOR has awarded more than $850,000 to 670 researchers and students with mini-grants for scholarly research, annual meeting travel, excavation projects, and dig scholarships through our grant programs (see the Dever, Gold, Harris, Heritage, MacAllister, Meyers, Meyers/Wright, Platt, Seger, Sheeler, Strange/Midkiff, and Member Supported Fellowships).
