Grant holders are invited to join a DAI department for a duration of up to two months. DAI will cover travel expenses and provide accommodation in the department's guest rooms as well as a daily allowance to cover living expenses.
Applicants need to hold a university degree and work on a research project within the fields of pre- and early history, classical archeology, early Christian archeology, Islamic archeology, and ancient history.
