Strata: BAR Scholarships Send Diggers to Biblical Sites

Excavations are powered by countless volunteers who bring their enthusiasm, skills and strength to the trenches. This past summer BAR awarded scholarships of $1,000 each to 24 qualified volunteers who would not otherwise have been able to participate.

This year’s winners were chosen from a pool of more than 120 applicants. This diverse group includes students and working professionals who have been accepted to dig at sites throughout Israel, Jordan and Cyprus.

On behalf of the scholarship winners, BAR offers our sincere thanks to the generous donors who made this year’s scholarship program possible:

Norma Kershaw
