NEW: AIA-NEH Grants for Archaeological Research


Funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The AIA and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) are excited to announce a new NEH-funded, AIA-managed grant program to support archaeological research around the world. The program offers two types of grants. Small grants up to $15,000 each for post-fieldwork research and publication preparation and larger grants up to $50,000 each for fieldwork. Projects can focus on any region of the world or time period, but must include a humanistic core of methods and goals. These grants, for individuals, are open to both AIA Members and to non-members who are U.S. citizens or residents of the United States for the three years preceding their application submission.

The deadline for applications is December 1, 2019. More information on eligibility and how to apply for the grant is available here.
