The AIA is excited to announce an archaeological grant program to support post-fieldwork activities. The AIA will award between 6 and 7 grants, up to a maximum of $15,000 each, for post-fieldwork research and publication preparation. Activities that qualify for these grants include:
Grants cannot be used for:
Awards will be available to individuals holding a Ph.D., or an equivalent degree or commensurate experience, including both junior scholars (7 years or fewer post-Ph.D.) and senior scholars (more than 7 years post-Ph.D.).
Projects can focus on any region of the world or time period but must include a humanistic core of methods and goals.
Grants are open to both AIA Members and to non-members. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or residents of the United States for the three years preceding their application submission.
Individuals who receive awards may request that their institutions administer the grant on their behalf but without indirect costs or institutional overhead.
The term of the grant will be one year.
Applications will be evaluated on the following criteria:
Successful applicants will present a plan for publication and dissemination of their results.
Awardees will be required to submit a final field/study report within 6 months after the project’s stipulated completion date. The report should include the final budget reconciliation and an explanation of how grants funds were used.
Awardees are expected to submit an abstract for either a paper presentation or a poster at the AIA Annual Meeting within two years of the end date of the grant. Submissions will be evaluated in the general pool, and acceptance is not guaranteed.
The current program is an extension of the AIA-NEH Research Grants for Archaeology program and is supported by the NEH
The deadline for applications is December 1, 2022. More information on eligibility and how to apply for the grant is available here.
