The Shohet Scholars Program offers grants of $5000 to $30,000 to support scholars of demonstrated promise and ability who are judged capable of producing significant, original research. Shohet Scholars may do their research in the fields of archeology, art history, classical studies, history, comparative religions, or related subjects. The focus of the work should be within the sphere of the Mediterranean world from the late Hellenistic Period to the end of the Roman Empire. Of special interest are interdisciplinary projects that approach traditional topics from new perspectives.
The grant is sponsored by the International Catacomb Society, but supported research does not need to be related to the Roman catacombs (although applications for projects focused on the catacombs are welcome).
