Funding opportunity for Black undergraduates (ARCE)

From Humans Against Poor Scholarship:

Humans Against Poor Scholarship is offering grants of $1,000 to Black undergraduate students in their junior or senior year of study, in order to help cover the costs of attending the ARCE annual meeting  (Irvine, April 22-24, 2022 in-person and May 6-8 online). Two grants of $1,000 are available.

To help students navigate what can be a deeply daunting experience, successful applicants will also be paired with Ph.D. students or early career scholars who will act as a mentor during the conference. This grant not only provides financial aid for conference attendance, but gives Black students the opportunity to start forming professional networks that are so crucial for developing an academic career.

Historically Underrepresented Groups Scholarships

This funding opportunity offered by the SAA may be helpful for some of you thinking of field schools or excavations this summer:

Historically Underrepresented Groups Scholarships
Now accepting applications. The application deadline is January 31, 2022.

HUGS Application 2022

The Historically Underrepresented Groups Scholarship (HUGS) endowment fund was established in 2010 to increase recruitment and retention of under represented minorities obtaining degrees in archaeology. Embracing diversity in heritage and narratives is key to understanding the past. However, minority groups have long been under represented and marginalized in American archaeology, creating an imbalance with consequences, not only in research goals and interpretations, but also in communication with diverse publics. Since 2015, the SAA has used the HUGS endowment to help minority students enhance their education and successfully prepare for careers in archaeology and heritage management. The Society along with the Minority Scholarship Committee is committed to the inclusion of under-represented minorities in archaeology. Support for these scholarships comes from individual donations and corporate partnerships. The following competitive scholarships are currently offered:

HUGS for Undergraduate Students supports archaeological training or participation in a research program for undergraduate minority students, including but not limited to tuition, travel, food, housing, books, supplies, equipment, and child care. Any form of archaeological training during the summer may be funded, not just limited to field schools. Amount awarded is up to $3,000 with one to two scholarships available each year. Six $3,000 scholarships will be available for 2022.

HUGS for Graduate Students supports archaeological training or participation in a research program for graduate minority students, including but not limited to tuition, travel, food, housing, books, supplies, equipment, and child care. Any form of archaeological training during the summer may be funded, not just limited to field schools. Amount awarded is up to $3,000 with one to two scholarships available each year.
