Strata: 2018 BAS Scholarship Recipients

They came, they saw, they dug.

This past summer, volunteers traveled to archaeological excavations throughout the Biblical world. They gave their time, energy, and enthusiasm to keep digs running effectively. Stu-dents and teachers, amateurs and professionals, juveniles and retirees—they all picked up trowels and brushes to actively help uncover the remains of ancient civilizations.

Every year the Biblical Archaeology Society (BAS) provides scholarships to individuals who would not otherwise be able to participate in an archaeological excavation. In 2018, BAS awarded 14 qualified individuals scholarships of $2,000 each—enabling them to dig at sites in Israel and Jordan.
