STUDENT RESEARCH GRANTS FOR 2023 - DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION 12/15/2022
AWIARE, in cooperation with the Levett Foundation, is making available up to $10,000 to provide assistance to graduate students who are conducting archaeological, historical, and paleoenvironmental research in the greater Tampa Bay region.
Types of projects that will be considered include field research, laboratory analyses, collections research, and documents research. Priority will be given to applicants whose proposals include; 1) field research at Weedon Island Preserve; 2) research using artifact, faunal, or documents collections at AWIARE; 3) field research sites at the greater Tampa Bay area (Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando, Citrus, Manatee, and Sarasota counties); 4) research using Tampa Bay area collections held elsewhere (Florida Museum of Natural History, Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research, Smithsonian Institution, local museums, and private collections).
Research related to the Weeden Island Culture and Period is encouraged but not required. Paleoenvironmental research must have applicability to archaeological or historical time periods (i.e., Late Pleistocene through the modern era) and interests (e.g., human-environment interaction; effects of sea level variation on human populations; climatic variability through time).
Individuals interested in applying must be currently enrolled in a university graduate program.
THE DEALINE FOR APPLYING FOR THE 2023 GRANT IS DECEMBER 15, 2022!
