Grants and Fellowships

In addition to providing administrative support and a reliable base for a wide array of expeditions and scholarly research taking place in Egypt, ARCE also provides funding, in the form of grants, for a significant number of research and conservation projects each year. Grants come in two forms:


ARCE fellowships focus primarily on individual scholarly research. Learn more>>


AEF grants support professional projects that serve the conservation, preservation and documentation needs of Egyptian antiquities as defined by Egyptian law to be more than 100 years old. Learn more>>


ARCE does not provide referrals for American scholars applying to the Fulbright program. ARCE operates a competitive fellowship program for pre (ABD) and postdoctoral scholars. All ARCE fellows are vetted by our Fellowship Committee and cleared by the Egyptian government – thus we do not provide referrals for other organizations. Your referral should come from an Egyptian university, NGO or organization affiliated with the Fulbright program.
