  1. Can you please help me? I gave IFR (Institute for Field School
    Research) a $500 deposit for the Dhiban, Jordan dig. I found them
    through the Biblical Archaeology website. It was my understanding that
    they offer assistance to offset the cost of their incredibly expensive

    I applied to 4 scholarships, which I did not receive, not one! As a
    result, I could not afford to go, because I will begin Grad School in
    Archaeology this Fall. There was no way to afford both simultaneously.
    IFR made numerous claims that they affordable and help students. All
    but me. They absolutely refuse to refund my $500. Please help!
    Thanking you,
