The Ackerman Family Excavation Fellows at Tell es-Safi/Gath (2015)
Thanks to the generous funding of the Ackerman family of South Africa, we hereby are happy to announce an exciting new fellowship for students from all over the world, to assist in participation in the excavations at Tell es-Safi/Gath, Israel.
The grant (approximately 20 will be awarded), will cover the R&B costs for the entire season at the excavations at Tell es-Safi/Gath. Fellows will have to cover their travel expenses to and from Israel, and all expenses in Israel incurred not during the excavation itself (including costs of weekends during the dig).
Fellows, if accepted, will commit to participate in all the activities for the duration of the entire season of excavations (June 28-July 24, 2015). In addition, fellows will commit to preparing a written report on their experience during the excavation, and participate in filmed interviews about their experiences.
To apply, please download the fellowship application form (see “Ackerman Fellows” tab above), fill it out, and send back a digital version (if scanned, it must be legible) to firstname.lastname@example.org. All materials, including letter of recommendation, must arrive by Dec. 31st, 2014.
Notification of the awards will be sent out by Jan. 31st, 2015.
