The Balkan Heritage Foundation (BHF), Bulgaria, and the Institute for Field Research (IFR), USA, would like to remind interested applicants that in 2017, the BHF-IFR Program for the Balkans once again will award two merit-based scholarships, of 1,200 USD each, for students participating in the Program’s projects. Only students who have been admitted to one of the eight BHF field schools through the Institute for Field Research are eligible for these scholarships.

The submission deadline for scholarship applications is April 7, 2017, at 5:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time. This scholarship has no cash value, but rather will be applied as a reduction in the student’s field school tuition.

Students attending the Program’s projects may apply for other IFR scholarships as well. The only way to apply for the Program is through the IFR website.

More details on the different projects included in the program are available at: https://www.bhfieldschool.org/information/bhf-ifr-program.
