British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem


The British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem makes awards in March of each year of a Jerusalem scholarship and a number of travel and research grants for work into some aspect of Levantine archaeology and related topics of any period from the Prehistoric to the Ottoman.


A scholarship worth around £6,000 in 1998 is offered for full-time research of such a nature that residence in the area covered by the School's interests is essential; the Scholar will be expected to be in the area at least eight months. Preference may be given to projects requiring residence in Jerusalem. Applicants are required to submit a summary of their proposed research, which should normally be of a postgraduate standard. Those needing advice on particular aspects of their proposed research may consult the Director of the School. A report suitable for publication should be produced by the Scholar within two years of the conclusion of the period for which the award has been made.


Smaller sums are also offered to enable recipients to participate in the School's excavations and other projects or to study in a related field. Applications are also welcome from scholars for grants towards independent research projects in the areas described above.

Applicants for the award should be citizens of a country of the British Commonwealth but preference will be given to graduates affiliated to a British project or British academic institution.

Application forms are available from: The Assistant Secretary, The British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem, 21 Buccleuch Place, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH8 9LN, tel./fax. (0131) 650 3975, email: bsaj.jerusalem@ed.ac.uk.

Completed forms should be received by the Assistant Secretary no later than 31 January 1998. Applicants may be requested to attend an interview, probably in March.

Letters to the Director should be addressed to: Richard P.Harper Esq., F.S.A., the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem, P.O. Box 19283, Jerusalem 91192, Israel.
