The Qumran Institute of the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies (University of Groningen) is delighted to present the Florentino García Martínez Research Master Scholarship for excellent students, established by Jan Overmeer. The scholarship is specifically for students in the fields of Hebrew Bible, early Judaism and Dead Sea Scrolls.
The scholarship is € 1,000 and is meant to cover some of the expenses connected with the two-year Research Master programme at the Faculty’s Graduate School.
Fantastic news for those wishing to pursue an advanced degree in the field. Check out the links.

If you are in Texas, you might want to visit Florentino García Martínez’s private library collection (including offprints and his notes) — and you may want to check his handwritten comments and corrections (generally in Spanish) in the many DJD volumes. http://www.laniertheologicallibrary.com/florentino-garcia-martinez-collection/
Texas finally has something worth seeing!
