The American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) sponsors the Jennifer C. Groot Fellowships. This fellowship will provide two or more awards to undergraduate or graduate students to enable their participation in an archaeological excavation or survey in Jordan. The fellowships are to assist in partial payment of essential expenses and are strictly limited to students with little or no prior archaeological field experience. Prior recipients of a Jennifer C. Groot Fellowship or applicants who have had more than one season in the field are ineligible. Senior Staff whose expenses are being borne largely or entirely by the project are ineligible. The Jennifer C. Groot Fellowship provides support in the amount of $1,800 for each award.
Applicants must be a Canadian or US citizen planning to participate in an ASOR/CAP affiliated project in Jordan. The fellowship must be used during the period between May 1, 2013 and April 30, 2014.
