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 Program
Originally started in 2005, the AIA Publications Subvention Program seeks to support new book-length publications in the field of Classical Archaeology (defined as Greek, Roman, and Etruscan archaeology and art history). Particularly welcome are projects that publish the work of first-time authors or represent the publication of final reports of primary data from sites already excavated or surveyed, but are still unpublished. To make a donation to the Public Subvention 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. Among our grants is the new Elizabeth Bartman Museum Internship Program, named in honor of AIA Past President Elizabeth Bartman. Learn more about our Student Grants.
The AIA is pleased to offer seven fellowships including the new John R. Coleman Traveling Fellowship. 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.
