Deadline for applications is Thursday, Feb. 29, 2024. The recipient will be recognized at the ARCE Northern California chapter’s March meeting.

Applicants must either be enrolled at a Northern California college or university (Monterey to the Oregon border) or come from a hometown within that area.

The grant honors a beloved chapter member, the late Professor Eugene Cruz-Uribe, an Egyptologist specializing in the Greco-Roman period who died following a bicycle accident in 2018.
