Support ASOR's Fellowship Program
ASOR is fortunate to have modest endowments that support excavation fellowships and scholarships for the Annual Meeting. However, the largest support for these scholarships comes from individual donors on an annual basis. Please contact executive director, Andy Vaughn, if you would like to support a Heritage scholarship, an Annual Meeting scholarship, or provide financial support in other ways. Gifts of all amounts are needed and greatly appreciated.
