An award of $24,000 for travel and study to be conducted between July 1 of the award year and the following June 30. Preference will be given to projects of at least a half-year’s duration.
The award is to be used for travel and study in Greece (the modern state), Cyprus, the Aegean Islands, Sicily, southern Italy (that is, the Italian provinces of Campania, Molise, Apulia, Basilicata, and Calabria), Asia Minor (Turkey) or Mesopotamia (that is, the territory between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, that is modern Iraq and parts of northern Syria and eastern Turkey). Although the proposal may require travel outside these areas, the majority of travel proposed must be within them.
The award is not intended to support field excavation projects. AIA fellowship funds may not be used for institutional overhead, institutional administrative recovery costs, or institutional indirect costs.
To be eligible, applicants must be a United States citizen and must have been AIA members in good standing for at least two consecutive years (or one year for graduate students) by the application deadline. Preference will be given to individuals engaged in dissertation research or to those who received their Ph.D. within five years of the application deadline.
