The Olwen Tudor Jones Scholarship for Archaeological Fieldwork in the Mediterranean was offered by SoMA for the first time in 2001. In January 2002 the Council of SoMA voted to rename the scholarship in memory of Olwen Tudor Jones. Subsequently, after generous donations were received from Olwen's family and friends, a capital preserved trust was set up. It is this Trust, subsequently augmented by funds raised from SoMA events that finances the annual scholarship.

The OTJ Scholarship is offered to a University of Sydney student of archaeology, or associated field, of high academic achievement for the purpose of partially funding that student's travel costs to participate in fieldwork in the Mediterranean region. Preference is given to a student who will be working on a Sydney University project, and to a student who has not previously participated in an archaeological project in the Mediterranean before.

The scholarship is now closed.
The next will be offered in early 2014
