Field School Application

We’re glad you’re interested in  the AAP Field School.

Please note that there will be no Field School during the summer of 2014, as we will be conducting a project study season. The information below is now for reference purposes only.

Stay tuned for more information on Field School 2015.

Dates: The 2013 season ran from 01 June 2013 through 15 July 2013.

Student Participants: undergraduates with serious interest in archaeology and a high GPA are invited to apply. (Minorities and women are particularly encouraged.) Students will receive instruction in regional archaeological survey, topographic and site mapping (including remote sensing and computer-assisted mapping), excavation techniques, record keeping and computer data management, artifact analysis, and other aspects of archaeological field and lab research. Each student will plan and complete an independent research project under the supervision of AAP’s faculty and specialists.

A three-day break in the program gives students the opportunity, if they wish, to visit more of Cyprus or other Mediterranean destinations close to the island.

Cost of the Program: Tuition & fees, transportation to and from the site, bus excursions to other sites and museums, room & board, and one Davidson College credit course (= four semester hours) cost U.S. $4,000 for the 2013 season. Transatlantic air travel, estimated at $1,200 – $1,400, is to be arranged by the student. A limited number of National Science Foundation REU grants will be available for some students. These include allowances for airfare, tuition and a weekly stipend.
