Step #2:  Fill out the Bar-Ilan University Tell es-Safi volunteer application form. There are two steps you must do right away before you complete the application. All the information that you need for steps “a” and “b” of the application can be found here.  This is best done as soon as possible since space fills up quickly. We recommend that you do it before end of January.

      b. Sign the signature sheet
      c. Submit the Tell es-Safi volunteer application.

Step #3:  Fill out and submit online student and volunteer application for participating in the archaeological excavation.

Please send a copy of the application and confirmation email from Prof. Aren Maeir that your application is accepted to greenres@umanitoba.ca.
 
IMPORTANT: Remember when filling out the Tell es-Safi application for steps 2a-b (above), you are signing up as a VOLUNTEER on these forms. The U of M runs its own field school alongside the Bar-Ilan field school.DO NOT sign up for the Bar-Ilan field school.
 
Also please be advised that you should complete this application ASAP because there is only 10 spaces for University of Manitoba participants and they fill up very fast.
