The deadline for the Ackerman Dig Fellowships has passed and I wanted to thank the many applicants for sending in the required materials.
We will send out answers regarding who will receive the fellowship by the end of January.
Clearly – and unfortunately, in light of the large number of applicants, and the fact that only about 20 fellowships can be granted, not all of those that applied will receive the fellowship.
But, in any case, I want to express my thanks to them all, and those that wrote the recommendation letters, for their efforts.
And needless to say, even if you don’t get the fellowship, you are invited to join the team this coming summer!
Hope to see you all in the field at Tell es-Safi/Gath, in late June, 2015!!!
