The Albright annually provides up to $200,000 in fellowships and awards to about 25 recipients. In addition, 50 Associate Fellows receive funding from other sources.

Fellowships are one to six months and come with a stipend and room/board at the Albright. Fellowships are open to students and scholars in Near Eastern studies from prehistory through the Islamic period, including the fields of archaeology, anthropology, art history, biblical studies, epigraphy, historical geography, history, language, literature, philology, religion, and related disciplines.

The research period should be continuous, without frequent trips outside the country. Residence at the Albright is required. The option to accommodate dependents is subject to space available at the Albright.

 

All awards are subject to the availability of funds. In certain cases, funding is not guaranteed until September of the fellowship year.

The Albright does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.
