The recipient of the first uOAS Fieldwork Scholarship is Julie Montreuil. The scholarship amount for 2011 was $250 to go towards her fieldwork expenses.
UPDATE: Thanks to the Students’ Association of the Faculty of Arts who have graciously matched the funds we raised in order to award Julie Montreuil with a $500 scholarship!
Julie will be spending 4 weeks in the town of Pylos, Greece, with the Iklaina Archaeological Project, where she will be participating in the excavation of the Early Helladic, Middle Helladic, and Mycenaean settlement at Iklaina. She will also be working with finds and ceramics at the Pylos museum. For more information about this project, you can visit their site: http://www.iklaina.org.
