Support Grants, Fellowships, and Endowments
Support the Society Outreach Grant
The AIA Society Outreach Grant is designed to encourage our Societies to plan and implement outreach activities in their local communities. The financial assistance given by the grant has allowed Societies to host a myriad of outreach events, including: organizing Archaeology Fairs, creating educational materials for schools, hosting service learning projects, holding forums on current archaeological issues, doing experimental archaeology projects, and more. Each project shows the diversity of archaeology and the varied interests of our Societies and their programs aimed at addressing many audiences, age groups, and interest levels. Donate now to support future events.

Publication Subvention Grant
Originally started in 2005, the Publications Subvention Grant seeks to support new book-length publications in the field of Classical Archaeology. The grant often is received by first-time authors or to recipients presenting previously unpublished data. To make a donation to the Public Subvention Grant, please contact the Fellowship Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more about the grant and how to apply.
Publication Preparation Grant
The Publication Preparation grant helps to assist scholars in preparing, completing, and publishing results of their research. This grant supports the scholarly publication of already excavated archaeological material in a peer-reviewed outlet. It is intended to assist in the final analysis, writing, and preparation for publication of the results of research so that, by the end of the second year under the grant, a completed manuscript (article or monograph) will be submitted for publication. To make a donation or to learn more about the Public Preparation Grant, please contact the Fellowship Coordinator at email@example.com. Learn more about the grant and how to apply.
The AIA values the undergraduate and graduate students in our organization as we realize the future of the AIA and of archaeological studies lies in their hands. To encourage and support students along the way, the AIA provides a number of grants which aim not only to ease the financial burden but also to help enhance their studies by giving them opportunities they might not have been able to afford. Learn more about our Student Grants.
The AIA is pleased to offer six fellowships. Each fellowship supports travel and study across several archaeological areas. Fellowships are granted on a yearly and biennial basis and are open to Members of the Archaeological Institute of America. Learn more about the application process and deadlines.
For information about supporting AIA Fellowships, please contact Jennifer Klahn at 617.353.8709 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The AIA works to safeguard the world's archaeological heritage for future generations through direct preservation, raising awareness of threats to sites, education, outreach, and by facilitating the spread of best practices.
With nearly two thirds of our Lecture Series endowed, the AIA has come to rely on our generous supporters to keep our programs growing and flourishing. While we welcome you to explore your options with our Lecture Series, there are many other opportunities for you to create an endowment at the AIA which will have a lasting effect.
