Mesopotamian Fellowship

Scholarship Description

The Mesopotamian Fellowship provides support in the amount of $7,000 for one three-to-six month period of research. This fellowship is primarily intended to support field/research in ancient Mesopotamian civilization carried out in the Middle East, but other research projects such as museum or archival research related to ancient Mesopotamian studies may also be considered. The Mesopotamian Fellowship is based on a July to June fiscal year. A recipient who does not use the fellowship for at least three months must forfeit and return a prorated amount of the stipend. Fellowship time should be continuous, without frequent trips outside the Middle East. Pre-doctoral students and post-doctoral scholars from any country are invited to apply. Applicants must be affiliated with an institution that is a corporate member of ASOR, or must obtain individual membership in ASOR. Each recipient must submit a written report within two months of the conclusion of the award period, according to ASOR guidelines. A portion of the stipend will be withheld until the report is received. An acknowledgment of ASOR support must be included in the published reports of the project. ASOR is an equal opportunity organization.
