The JHU/AIAR Undergraduate Archaeological Fellowship provides funding for a Johns Hopkins University undergraduate student to participate in an Albright Institute archaeological field school as well as a one month internship at the Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem. Applicants must be enrolled at Johns Hopkins University and participate in the fellowship before their graduation date.
For the summer of 2017, awardees will attend the Jezreel Valley Regional Project archaeological field school at the Legionary Base of the Roman VIth Legion at Legio, Israel (17 June to 21 July, 2017). The subject of the one-month internship at the Albright (22 July – 22 August, 2017) will be determined on an individual basis, based on the student’s research interests.
Fellowship award will cover full participant costs (incl. room and board) during the excavation, room and board at the Albright Institute for one month, and $2100 for airfare and stipend.
Applicants should write a letter of application indicating their career goals and how this fellowship would help to achieve them. Applicants should include a Curriculum Vitae.
