About the Shelby White and Leon Levy Program
The Shelby White and Leon Levy Program for Archaeological Publications supports research on terminated and unpublished archaeological field work from significant sites in the Aegean, Anatolia, Balkans, Egypt, Iranian Plateau, Levant, Mesopotamia, Nubia, and Sudan. Since its inception in 1997, over 13 million dollars in grants has been awarded to over 200 scholars. Application is open to archaeologists holding a doctorate degree, or to doctoral candidates conducting research on unpublished field work, provided they can devote their full attention to the publication project.
The Program awards grants for up to three years on a contractual basis and on the condition that the applicant has secured the legal right to access and to prepare the materials for publication. The grantee is responsible for reporting annually to the Board on the project's progress towards publication.
The program is funded by the generosity of the Leon Levy Foundation.
