Program 1

International Archaeology Summer School for Students at CLE (IAS)

International Archaeology Summer School for Students at CLE is Crisler Library's (CLE) flagship program, a CLE-developed study program about Ephesos, taught by an international group of archaeologists and architects. It is open to qualified university undergraduates, Master's Degree and Ph.D. candidates in archaeology, history and philology. It was initiated in July 2009 as a one week "building bridges" and cross-cultural program, with university students coming from Turkey, Slovakia, Germany and Palestine. They all attended on scholarships. Due to the pilot program's enormous success, IAS was repeated in July 2010 and expanded to two weeks with university students coming from the United States, Turkey, Slovakia, German and Palestine. Those needing financial assistance were helped by The Maria Rossiwall Scholarship Fund, set up in 2010 to help worthy students from around the world attend the CLE program.
