the downloadable Turkish research application form. It is in MS Word format in
template form with data entry boxes. I also have linked a Webpage bearing
instructions for completing the file. I have looked at the calendar and have
decided that the effective dates (for purposes of the application) will be from
July 22 to Aug. 20. We will attempt to depart on July 14, arriving in Istanbul
Jul. 15. This summer the excavation did not open until July 20 (in 2013 the 22nd
is a Monday). I anticipate 3 weeks of survey work, meaning we will be wrapping
things up around August 12, assuming there are no delays. We must end the
survey on Aug. 20, regardless of any delays in starting up. However, we are

government for processing by various ministries. It is essential that all those

Again, if your application is not included and your name is not on the final approved list, your participation is not possible.
One complication with the application is that it requires 6 passport photos. One solution is for everyone to let Prof. Rauh make a digital photograph of your head in his office when you turn in the application. If you are not a Purdue student you must either send Rauh a digital “passport photo” of yourself as an attached email file, or send Rauh 6 copies of your actual passport photo (in high resolution) along with your signed application.
