William G. Dever Fellowship for Biblical Scholars: A two–month travel-study award of $7,000 will be made available in the summer of 2017 to a qualified American untenured faculty member in the field of biblical studies who wants to acquire elementary, first-hand experience in field archaeology and research in Israel.

Study of Collections Fellowships: Two fellowships of $2,000 each to support the study of collections. Applicants must be current ASOR members.The collections covered by these fellowships include museum and archival collections, repositories, or collections of national authorities. The fellowship funds may be used to support travel and per diem expenses. Other direct expenses are permissible, but they may not exceed one-third of the funds received from ASOR. Indirect and/or overhead expenses are not allowable.
