American Archaeology Abroad holds an annual competition for scholarships for undergraduate students to attend archaeological excavations abroad. Current funding allows for one award of $1500 per year, but we intend to expand this program in future years to accommodate additional students. These competitions promote the organization’s goals of supporting archaeological excavations while also supporting the education of future archaeologists.

The 2016 Cohen Family American Archaeology Abroad Fellowship

Established with the generous support of the Cohen Family, this annual fellowship program awards a $1500 fellowship stipend to two American undergraduate students to help pay expenses associated with participation in an overseas excavation project.

Deadline: March 31, 2016


The fellowship is open to students enrolled in an American college or university. Applicants must be majoring in archaeology or a related discipline or able to demonstrate an intention to declare such a major field of study. Applicants must be at least 18 years old. The committee will consider both past academic achievement and potential for contribution to the field of archaeology as criteria for selection.

Al and Margaret Cohen American Archaeology Abroad Fellows are required to blog about their experience weekly on the AAA website and to submit a final report regarding their experience suitable for publication on our website.
