Diamond Jubilee Grants Applications are now open for our 2023 Student Travel Grants. For one year only, we are offering a number of special £3000 awards in celebration of The Anglo-Israel Archaeological Society’s Diamond Jubilee.
Diamond Jubilee Grants are available to UK students of archaeology, religious studies, and related topics.
Recipients will be given a place on the Tel Azekah archaeological project for a four-week field season, taking place from 16 July to 11 August. In addition, they will receive £3,000 to cover the full cost of return travel to Israel from the UK, insurance, and board and lodging on the Azekah programme during the week (Sunday to Friday only).
Students will have the opportunity to work on the excavations and attend lectures on archaeology and ancient history and culture while staying at Kibbutz Netiv Ha-Lamed-He, close to the site. They will also have free time on the weekends to travel within Israel. Note that grant recipients will be expected to cover the cost of weekend accommodation and activities outside the dig themselves.
