If you are a biblical scholar who wishes to experience digging at a biblical site, check out the following notice (and clearly, apply for this and then come to dig with us at Tell es-Safi/Gath!):
The William G. Dever Archaeological Fellowship for Biblical Scholars was established in 2015 by an anonymous donor.
This prestigious fellowship enters its second year in 2016, and the amount will be increased to $7,000. This two–month travel-study award will be made available in the summer of 2016 to a qualified American non-tenured faculty member in the field of biblical studies who wants to acquire elementary, first-hand experience in field archaeology and research in Israel.
The application deadline is December 15, 2015. Link: http://www.asor.org/fellowships/wdever.html
