The Classical Association of the Middle West and South annually awards three $2000.00 scholarships for participation in summer excavation or field school at an archaeological site in the Greco-Roman world. These awards may support individuals engaged in any stage of the work, including physical excavation, illustration, digital recording, faunal and ceramic analysis. One of these awards is named in honor of former CAMWS president Peter Knox of Case Western University. Generally, one award will be made to at least one graduate student and another to an undergraduate, but teachers at all levels of instruction are also eligible for this award. Professional archaeologists are not eligible for this award.
To be eligible for this award, one must be a current member of CAMWS who either
holds a teaching position in Greek or Latin in an elementary, secondary school or university within CAMWS territory
is enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student in a degree-granting program in Classics or who is enrolled in a program in History, Art History, Anthropology or Archaeology with a primary academic focus on the Greco-Roman world.
While priority will be given to applicants who have not had previous excavation experience in the Greco-Roman world, applicants returning to the field are also encouraged to apply.
To apply for the award please submit this On-line Application Form by February 15 of each year. Please note that this application requires letters of recommentation. It would be wise for applicants to discuss this with prospective recommenders early and warn them about this due date.
Recipients are encouraged to accept the award in person at the annual CAMWS business meeting and are expected to submit a written, illustrated report for the CAMWS Newsletter.
Note: An individual who wins this archaeology fieldwork award cannot also receive a Semple, Grant Award or Benario Award from CAMWS in the same year.
Please note that an individual cannot accept this award from CAMWS if he or she receives another award or scholarship for this fieldschool and the combined amount of these awards would be more than the cost of the fieldschool.
