Named Fellowships

ACOR offers a number of “Named Fellowships” and these are typically smaller awards of $800-$2000 dollars that support undergraduates or graduate students typically to participate in an archaeological dig or an independent research project in Jordan.  It is possible a scholar may be awarded more than one of the named fellowships bundled together.

They are called “Named” Fellowships because they carry the name of the person or persons who founded the fellowship and who established an endowment to fund the fellowships in perpetuity.  You will find a short background of the namesakes of the named fellowships in the information contained in this menu (right).

ACOR’s competitive fellowship application process results in annual cohorts of fellows who reflect a broad spectrum of disciplines as well as institutional, regional, and cultural backgrounds. The diversity of research topics is extensive, creating a dynamic environment that improves the educational exchange experience for all.

ACOR’s fellowship program has a long history of nurturing students and researchers as their scholarship matures through undergraduate and graduate study and then ultimately into professional academia. Some who first come to Jordan through an ACOR Named Fellowship, for example, later receive ACOR graduate and postgraduate fellowships that allow them to continue their careers in Jordan.
