The William G. Dever Archaeological Fellowship for Biblical Scholars
The mission of the W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research is to develop and disseminate scholarly knowledge of the literature, history, and culture of the Near East, as well as the study of the development of civilization from prehistory to the early Islamic period. A two-month travel-study award will be made available in the summer of 2015 to a qualified American untenured faculty member in the field of biblical studies who wants to acquire elementary, first-hand experience in field archaeology and research in Israel.
The intent of the award, administered by the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR), is to help foster a dialogue between archaeology and biblical studies in colleges, universities, and seminaries, as well as in the larger discipline. The William G. Dever Archaeological Fellowship for Biblical Scholars will provide $6,000 to be used to cover transportation; one month on a specified dig; and one month travel to other digs, combined with a one-month residency (room and half-board) at the W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem, which will allow the Dever Fellow to conduct research in the Albright library. During residency, the Albright Institute will facilitate visits to excavations active in the field.
