Estimated Size of Grant:

-Category A (Postdoctoral Scholars): Maximum $10,000
-Category B (Graduate Students): Maximum $5,000

Term of Contract:

The Foundation will consider support of long-term projects for up to three years, but the continuation of the funding will be subject to annual review and the receipt of satisfactory interim reports. Excavation applications will be granted only up to one or two years, to provide seed money, so that the applicants will be able to show preliminary results while applying to other funding agencies.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Category A: Postdoctoral scholars of various ranks affiliated with universities or other recognized institutions such as museums or research institutions.

Category B: Graduate students, including those who participate in MA or PhD programs. The name and signature of the student's principal advisor should be included in the application.

CARE generally will not cover travel expenses to attend international meetings, unless they are devoted largely, or entirely, to Near Eastern prehistory and, even for such meetings, CARE can only cover travel costs when its resources permit. CARE does not support conferences and workshops, and it also does not fund university tuition and fees for graduate study

Pre-Application Information:
