Archaeology Field School Scholarship (Need Based Applicants)

Institute for Field Research

Website: http://ifrglobal.org/students/scholarships

Deadline: March 28, 2014

Description
The Institute for Field Research recognizes that the cost of field schools may be too high for some deserving students.  We believe that archaeology should be available to all.  This scholarship should help in offsetting a significant portion of field school tuition costs.  Students who can demonstrate eligibility (see below) may apply for this scholarship.
