Fund the next Indiana Jones (PhD in Archaeology)

Currently, I am half-way through my Doctoral program in Archaeology of the Ancient Near East/Biblical Archaeology. As you may already know, PhD education is expensive ($1,284 a credit hour in a 60+ credit program to be exact). I am raising money for the expenses needed for tuition, books, research and traveling since my research takes place in the Middle East. I am asking for your help through this financially, stressful season. If you wish give, you can certainly see the fruits of your giving! I am linking this page to my blog,, this blog is designed to give those interested a glimpse into Archaeology of the Ancient Near East. I update this site monthly with new blog posts and status concerning my current excavation, Khirbet Safra in Jordan as well as current research and projects I am working on.

I received my BA at Harding Univeristy in Biblical Languages and my MA in Biblical Languages and Archaeology at Trinity International University. The PhD is the next step in my academic/professional career in which will qualify and prepare me for further research in the field of Archaeology and Biblical Studies.

A PhD program is a full-time job. If you have ever wanted to help a struggling student in need, have wished for help during your own educational development or simply help fund the next Indiana Jones, then you know any donations will go a long way. My wife and I will be forever  grateful for your generosity and naturally  you can reach out to me for any inquiries, updates, feedback, etc. You may contact me at my site
