Jordanian Fellowships

ACOR offers a number of fellowships and scholarships specifically for Jordanian Citizens. 

The application process for all ACOR fellowships is online.

Our mission is advancing knowledge of Jordan and the interconnected region, past and present. Supporting Jordanian students and scholars is a critical part of that mission.

The leading scholarship program is the Jordanian Graduate Student Scholarship, which supports up to graduate students annually.

Three of our named fellowships support Jordanian scholarship. The Frederick-Wenger Memorial Fellowship specifically supports Jordanians, and the Russell Memorial and the Sauer Memorial Fellowships alternate so that each year one of the two is supporting a Jordanian student.

Finally, there is an annual travel award to support the participation of a Jordanian graduate student or working professional to deliver an academic paper at an international conference.

Jordanian Graduate Student Scholarship

Up to four awards of $3,000 each to assist Jordanian graduate students with the annual costs of their academic programs during the period May 1 of the award year through May 31 of the following year. Candidates must be Jordanian citizens and enrolled in either a Master’s or Doctoral program in a Jordanian university at the time of their application. Eligibility is limited to students in programs related to Jordan’s cultural heritage (for example: archaeology, anthropology, linguistics/epigraphy, history, conservation, museum studies, and cultural resource management related issues). Awardees who demonstrate excellent progress in their programs will be eligible to apply in consecutive years.
