Student Award Deadline – October 1st

Student Grant – Deadline October 8th

The Society for California Archaeology executive board has implemented a virtual presentation series in recognition of California Archaeology Month. The Board is offering a grant of $2500 to be awarded to the student with the best proposal. Students will be asked to host, via Zoom, an hour long live virtual presentation on their current thesis or doctoral research, taking place in late October.

The event will consist of a twenty-minute presentation 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 recorded video that outlines their virtual presentation proposal and a statement on how the grant would support the student’s research. Additionally, the student must submit a written list of four professional archaeologists who are familiar with the subject matter and would be good discussion panelists, with explanation of their relevant credentials (need not be thesis/dissertation committee members). For consideration, proposals must be received by October 8th. To submit your proposal or for further information contact incoming SCA President, found on the SCA leadership page. Selected grant recipients will be announced on October 15th.
