Scholarship Opportunity for Kenchreai Field School

Sunoikisis is offering a scholarship position for an undergraduate student to participate in the fieldschool of the Kenchreai Cemetery Project.

About: This four-week summer program introduces students to the archaeology, history and culture of Greece through participation in a field school and accompanying seminars and excursions. The Kenchreai Excavations, directed by Professor Rife, provide a unique opportunity to learn about the past first-hand at one of Greece’s most spectacular seaside archaeological sites.

In the 2011 season, students will have the opportunity to work with specialists in Roman ceramics, human bones, animal bones, soil and botanical remains, magical artifacts, inscriptions, small finds, and photography and illustrations.

Scholarship Information: Sunoikisis will pay the participation fees for this student, which covers the cost of the educational program, accommodations and most meals.

Airfare to and from Athens, train fare to and from Corinth, certain weekend meals, and incidental expenses are the student’s responsibility. He or she will receive a stipend of $1,300 to help cover these costs.

Eligibility: Concentrators or majors from any field may apply for this opportunity. Candidates from institutions that have participated in Sunoikisis in the past will receive priority. Applicants must be intellectually curious and willing to engage directly with other cultures. Knowledge of either ancient or modern Greek is welcome but not required. Only current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are eligible to apply and participate. Students who have participated in CHS programs in the past are eligible to apply. However, students who have never had a CHS internship will have priority.
