The Boochever Fund will support field and laboratory research. The income from the Fund will be used to fund grants to archaeologists to help defray the costs of beginning a new project. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis. Each project should be designed to address significant questions about the human past. The Fund will support activities such as a site or regional survey, exploratory excavations, or innovative laboratory analyses, informed by state-of-the-art technologies.
