Fellowships and grants

ARCS Fellowships, Scholarships and Awards

An important component of the Mission of ARCS is to provide financial and logistical support for individual and team research projects and to promote the preservation of archaeological sites and the development of museums in Bulgaria. ARCS, therefore, offers fellowships to pre-doctoral and postdoctoral scholars based at American universities as well as scholarships and travel awards for Bulgarian PhD students and young postdoctoral scholars. The annual Gipson Dissertation Publication award enables a young Bulgarian postdoctoral student to publish her/his dissertation in English. There is also an annual competition for collaborative archaeology projects in Bulgaria (ICAB) as well as for site preservation, conservation and museum enhancement (SPCME) in Bulgaria.

The ARCS Pre-doctoral Fellowships, ARCS Postdoctoral Fellowship, Bulgarian Scholars Program, International Conference Travel Awards, ICAB and SPCME are very generously funded by the America for Bulgaria Foundation. The Gipson Postdoctoral Fellowships and Gipson Dissertation Publication Award are funded by Robert and Nellie Gipson (the Tianaderrah Foundation).
