Strata: 2017 BAS Scholarship Donors and Winners

Without volunteers, archaeological excavations throughout the Biblical world would come to a screeching halt. Volunteers donate not only their time and energy, but also their enthusiasm, tenacity and critical-thinking skills. Their participation is vital to a successful excavation. Volunteers come from all around the world and from various walks of life—students and teachers, amateurs and professionals, juveniles and retirees—to help uncover the past.

Every year the Biblical Archaeology Society (BAS) provides scholarships to individuals who would not otherwise be able to participate in an archaeological excavation. This year BAS awarded 20 qualified individuals scholarships of $1,500 each. This diverse group chose to excavate throughout the Biblical world at sites in Israel and Jordan.
