THEODORE N. ROMANOFF PRIZE
This generous grant provides $2000 for research on the language or historical texts of ancient Egypt – including the Coptic language as the final stage of historic Egyptian languages. At present, the prize is only awarded in conjunction with an ARCE fellowship. This prize is awarded in years when a qualified candidate is identified.
WILLIAM P. MCHUGH MEMEORIAL FUND
The William P. McHugh Memorial Fund encourages the study of Egyptian geo-archaeology and prehistory by providing a special award of $600 to a pre-doctoral student. Currently, the award is only offered in conjunction with an ARCE Fellowship and therefore, is open to U.S. citizens at universities worldwide.
All fellows receive a monthly per diem commensurate with their academic status that provides for round-trip economy airfare.
This association with ARCE is open to U.S. citizen pre-doctoral (ABD), postdoctoral, early career and senior scholars worldwide and foreign nationals studying or teaching at American universities in the U.S. with independent funding. Research associates receive the same level of administrative and academic support accorded ARCE-funded fellows but must have their own funding resources. ARCE requires research associates to pay a modest fee to offset the cost of providing administrative services. Interested applicants should complete the ARCE Fellowship Application and indicate Research Associate status on the application. Minimum three months, maximum 12 months stay.
