The Society for California Archaeology executive board is pleased to announce the second installment of a new virtual presentation series in recognition of California Archaeology Month. The Board, in partnership with the California Office of Historic Preservation, is offering two separate grants of $1500 to be awarded to students 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.

The 2021 event will be held on October 28th and 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, as well as 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 Friday October 15th. To submit your proposal or for further information contact SCA Northern Vice President Brendon Greenaway at gro.emohacs@nodnerb Selected grant recipients will be announced on October 20, 2021.
