The Washington, DC Society is pleased to announce this year's recipient of the Elisabeth Craft Student Travel Fellowship, Luke Petrocelli of the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at the University of Maryland, College Park. As the winner, Mr. Petrocelli will receive $750 in order to support his attendance at the AIA Annual Meeting in New Orleans, January 8-11, 2015. In addition to extensive undergraduate and M.A. coursework, Mr. Petrocelli has participated in archaeological projects in Italy and Turkey, and his innovative work on a 3D scanning project at the Villa Arianna at Stabiae will be featured in the poster session at the Annual Meeting. 

The selection committee was impressed with the high quality of the applications that were received from local undergraduate and graduate students, all with strong academic qualifications, a range of interests, current or future fieldwork experience, and a passion for archaeology. The competition demonstrates the enthusiasm and talent among the local Society’s student membership and speaks well to the future of archaeology. 

To ensure that the Society is able to offer this fellowship in future years, we welcome tax-deductible donations to the general funds or to the endowment itself. Please contact Society Treasurer Alexis Catsambis if you would like to make a donation:
