Announcing Graduate Student Virtual Presentation Grants

An exciting grant opportunity for our student membership: The Society for California Archaeology executive board is pleased to announce a new virtual presentation series in recognition of California Archaeology Month. The Board, with funding from the California Office of Historic Preservation, is offering three separate grants of $1500 to be awarded to students with the best proposed event.

Students will be asked to host via Zoom an hour long live virtual presentation on their current thesis or doctoral research. The events will be held on three separate evenings to be determined in October and will consist of a thirty-minute talk followed by a roundtable discussion between the student and a three-person panel of established professional archaeologists relevant to their research.

To apply for the grant, students need to submit a brief (5-10 minute) recorded video that outlines their virtual presentation proposal and includes details on their selected panelists. Proposals will be judged on the quality of the presentation, organization, and research significance. For consideration, proposals must be received by Friday, September 18, 2020. To submit your proposal or for further information contact, SCA Northern Vice President Brendon Greenaway at brendon@nullscahome.org Selected grant recipients will be announced on October 1, 2020.
