Travel to the Mediterranean can be expensive, but the good news is that there are a number of grants and fellowships for which students can apply to offset the cost of travel, room and board. Some of these are internal to specific participating institutions while others are available through archaeological and academic organizations.
Deadlines tend to be in the late winter or early spring, so plan ahead!
AIA Jane Waldbaum Archaeological Field Fellowship (due March 1)
Wesleyan University Summer Experience Grants (a range of grants, variable due dates)
Wesleyan Squire Fellowship (through the Classics Department, due April 1)
Brandeis University AGRS Summer Fellowship (through the Dept of Classical Studies, due Feb 26)
