AIA-OC OFFERING $2,000 Scholarship
The Archaeological Institute of America-Orange County Society intends
to grant a $2,000 scholarship to a Southern California graduate student
in the second quarter of 2016.
The purpose of the grant is to provide funds for additional effort on a
project focusing on material culture in potentially important ways
allowing an outstanding archaeology student to do possibly
groundbreaking work that could advance his/her career as well as the
project. As examples, the funds could be used for underwriting
specialized dating methods; they could provide access to unique
research collections for extended comparative analysis; they could
allow creating or using software, for example to show how complex
adaptive systems theory relate to the project.
The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2016. The application is
available either at this link, or email email@example.com.
Please share this opportunity with any student doing graduate
coursework at any university in these counties: San Diego, Imperial,
Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, Kern, Santa
Barbara and San Luis Obispo.
