Dig Scholarships

The Biblical Archaeology Society, publisher of BAR, annually offers dig scholarships of $1,500 each to help deserving individuals participate in excavations, primarily in the Middle East. To apply, send a résumé, cover letter, and full contact information for two references (professional or academic) in one email to bas@bib-arch.org or by mail to BAS Dig Scholarships, 4710 41st St., NW, Washington, DC 20016, USA. In your letter, explain where and why you want to excavate, and why you should be selected for a scholarship. Priority will be given to first-time dig participants and those demonstrating financial need. Applications must be received by March 14, 2018.
