From the AAA Archaeology Division:
Dear Archaeology Division Members:
Please note that the AAA-AD offers grants for student participation in the annual meetings. Established in 2004, these grants are intended to increase participation in AAA sessions and in archaeology more widely by students from historically under-represented populations. African American, Alaskan Native, American Indian or Native American, Asian American, Latino and Latina, Chicano and Chicana, and Pacific Islander students in archaeology are encouraged to apply for these travel grants to help defray costs associated with attending the AAA meeting. Archaeology students with disabilities are also eligible for this grant. Up to four grants, of up to $600 each, will be awarded.
Deadline Sept. 15
To apply, please see instructions at http://www.aaanet.org/sections/ad/awards.html#Travel
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting in New Orleans.
Ben A. Nelson
President, Archaeology Division
