About this Fellowship

ACOR offers a number of fellowships for American pre-doctoral students, or students who are in the process of completing the Ph.D. degree. Principally this is the ACOR-CAORC Fellowship.

The American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) in Amman, Jordan is a private, international, non profit 501(c)(3), academic institution dedicated to promoting research and publication in the fields of archaeology, anthropology, ancient through Islamic history, art history, cultural resources management, conservation and preservation studies, Near Eastern languages, religion, and other aspects of Middle East and Near Eastern area studies.

Most of ACOR’s fellowship programs are “residential”, i.e., room, board, and research space are provided. ACOR attempts to create an academic community within the institute by choosing mature scholars and students from a variety of disciplines.

Please note: Current graduate students applying for American Center of Oriental Research Scholarships must also submit information to the Education Abroad Office at least 30 days prior to departure. See their website for more information.
