Excavation of this important site would not be possible without the financial support of institutions, donors, and consortium members. Consortium status for an institution provides the opportunity to invest in the ongoing excavations by paying an annual fee that carries with it a number of benefits beyond affiliation with the dig. Research benefits include full access to archaeological material, shared publication rights as cleared by the director, and the use of the HUC/NGSBA facilities (museum, storeroom, labs, classrooms, and library). These benefits are especially appealing to schools for research opportunities for graduate students and faculty with active research agendas that would enhance the standing of the institution in the broader academy. Closely related to this would be the second benefit of educational opportunity. Students from consortium member schools would have the opportunity to engage in collaborative projects with HUC/NGSBA faculty and staff and take advantage of programs such as intensive study tours and Hebrew language learning immersion. These sorts of experiences excite students for archaeology and the world of the Bible in a way that few others do.
