$2,500 Travel Prizes for Papers to Be Presented at ASOR/SBL

The Biblical Archaeology Society is offering two prizes of $2,500 each for travel expenses to present an academic paper at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) or the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), both to be held in San Diego in November. One prize will be awarded to a young scholar and another to an emeritus scholar. Both categories often fail to find institutional support.

The Hershel Shanks Prizes are supported as a legacy of the late Sami Rohr from his children. The decision to name the prizes after the BAR editor was made at the insistence of Mr. Rohr, a leading Florida philanthropist. Mr. Rohr’s three children likewise insisted on naming the prize after the BAR editor because “that is what our father wanted.”

Applications should be submitted to the Biblical Archaeology Society:

    OK, so what do we mean by young and what do we mean by emeritus?

  2. Mike says

    Must it be our original research, or can we create a manuscript compiled from other research projects? I’ve discovered a unique pattern in the literature nobody has reported. Can this be my work?
