Long-Term Research Fellowships in Israel at the W.F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem

14 months of stipend support (1 to 3 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of funds.

The W.F. Albright Institute is applying for the equivalent of 24 stipend months for a total of $100,800 per year, for each of the academic years 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, plus related selection costs at $9,000 per year. Funds would be used annually to support up to six (from 4 to 12 months) continuous, residential fellowships at the Institute in Jerusalem. Fellows pursue a research project, give a public lecture to the academic community while in residence, and participate in the activities of the Institute's scholarly community. The fellows' research projects culminate in a scholarly publication(s). The impact of this research, transmitted through the Albright's hundreds of alumni to institutions all over the world, has had a profound effect on the understanding of the humanities, western civilization, and its origins in the ancient Near East. The Albright supports scholarly work in Near Eastern studies from prehistory through the early Islamic period.
