In commemoration of BAR’s 40th Anniversary, the Biblical Archaeology Society, publisher of BAR, is establishing the Yigael Yadin Fellowship to enable a leading senior scholar to attend and give a paper at the annual meetings of ASOR (American Schools of Oriental Research) and/or SBL (Society of Biblical Literature). The fellowship carries a grant of up to $2,500.
Senior scholars are often technically considered “retired” at 65. They are relieved of some teaching duties, but they are in fact quite young, and they continue working full time on their research and publications. Yet they do not receive university funds to attend these important annual meetings in the United States.
