Yizhar Hirschfeld Memorial Fellowship in Archaeology
The Hirschfeld Fellowships seek to offer younger Israeli archaeologists the opportunity to pursue innovative projects, explore new sites and develop a personal scientific agenda. The Fellowship covers the costs of up to three seasons of excavations and provides funding towards publication of finds. The application process is open to scholars within seven years of completion of a PhD, who are sponsored by Israeli universities. Each of the five relevant universities are permitted to submit up to three applications annually. Sponsoring institutions provide assistance towards publication and analysis of finds, and commit to publication within two years of the final excavation season. Professor Yizhar Hirschfeld was a Classical archaeologist at the Institute of Archaeology of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the director of excavations at sites such as Ein Gedi, Tiberias, Hammat Gader and Ramat Hanadiv until his untimely death in 2006.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2012/2013 Fellowship.
