FIELD SCHOOL COSTS FOR 2020

The costs for undergraduate participants in the six credit program will be $4500 for NJ residents and $5070 for out-of-state residents. The costs for graduate participants in the six credit program will be $4800 for NJ residents and $5400 for out-of-state residents. The cost for graduate participants in the three credit program will be $2800 for NJ residents and $3050 for out-of-state residents.

Students interested in an internship, as described above, should consult with Prof. Farney (gfarney@rutgers.edu) about the costs.

These costs include tuition, room and board at the agriturismo, and transportation within Italy for program purposes. Airfare to Rome is not included in these costs, and participants must make their own travel arrangements being sure to arrive on time in Italy and leave only after the program has ended. We will arrange to bring you from Rome’s Fiumicino airport and take you out to the field school’s location.

There are several scholarship opportunities available from sources outside Rutgers for undergraduate and graduate students who wish to participate in archaeological excavations and field schools. Prof. Farney is happy to advise and support you in the process of applying for them. Our students have been successful in getting many of these in the past

Some limited scholarship money may also be available for some Rutgers University-Newark students in the Honors College or who are History or Ancient and Medieval Civilization majors or minors.  Please inquire with Prof. Farney (gfarney@rutgers.edu) for more information about this.

Students outside of Rutgers should consult their home-departments (esp. Anthropology, Classics, History) and universities who sometimes have scholarships they offer for students to do fieldwork. Teachers should ask at their schools about funds for professional development.
