Field School Application

We’re glad you’re interested in the AAP Field School.

AAP’s Field School is on hiatus due to COVID-19. Please stay tuned for updates in due course.

The information below from a past season is for reference only.

Dates: 05 June 2015 through 21 July 2015.

Student Participants: undergraduates with serious interest in archaeology and a high GPA are invited to apply.

(Minorities and women are particularly encouraged.) Students will receive instruction in regional archaeological survey, topographic and site mapping (including remote sensing and computer-assisted mapping), excavation techniques, record keeping and computer data management, artifact analysis, and other aspects of archaeological field and lab research. Each student will plan and complete an independent research project under the supervision of AAP’s faculty and specialists.

A three-day break in the program gives students the opportunity, if they wish, to visit more of Cyprus or other Mediterranean destinations close to the island. This year our break will follow a special three-day 25th anniversary celebration in Athienou.

Cost of the Program: Tuition & fees, transportation to and from the site, bus excursions to other sites and museums, room & board, and one Davidson College credit course (= four semester hours) cost U.S. $4,000 for the 2015 season. Transatlantic air travel, estimated at $1,300 – $1,500, is to be arranged by the student. A limited number of National Science Foundation REU grants will be available for some students. These include allowances for airfare, tuition and a weekly stipend.
