Warren Awards Announced; Eight Students Funded for Summer 2010

The Departments of Anthropology and of Classical and Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations are pleased to announce the 2010 winners of fellowships for archaeological research. This year, all the students will be working in Israel or Jordan. The winners are:
Joseph DiVirgilio (B.A. candidate, undeclared): Megiddo, Israel
Amanda Kemble (B.A. candidate, Anthropology): Megiddo
Samantha Malone (B.A. candidate, undeclared): Megiddo
Joseph Mazzariello (B.A. candidate, Archaeology): Megiddo

Katie Paul (M.A. candidate, Anthropology): Megiddo
Kyle Tomanio (B.A. candidate, Anthropology): Megiddo
Jonathan Warner (B.A., undeclared): Bir Madhkur, Jordan

This is the third year Warren awards have been made. The endowment was created by a generous gift from William Warren, a retired Foreign Service Officer, who received a B.A. in 1967 from what is now the Elliott School of International Affairs. He was American Consul in Adana, Turkey, served as Charge d'Affaires of the American Embassy in the Solomon Islands and in Samoa, and held other overseas posts. Warren established two awards, the Thomas and Ola Herbert Reidling Undergraduate Award for B.A. or B.S. candidates and the Zelma Reidling Warren Bannister and William Warren Graduate Fellowship Award for M.A. and Ph.D. candidates.
