The conditions for application are as follows:

  • They must have been accepted, at least provisionally, for a specific high-quality dig and be without means to finance their participation.
  • They must submit a description of the area of inquiry they intend to pursue in conjunction with the dig, or at least a description of what they expect to learn.
  • They must submit names of two professors who will write in support of their application.
  • Those who receive awards will be expected to report to the Chair of the Archaeology Committee on their participation by January 1 after their field experience.
