  • Scholarship Description
  • Matthew Tobin Cappetta was an archaeologist who spent a decade in the American Southwest, working with Native American tribes on archaeological sites. He instilled trust and humor in those around him. Matthew intended to attend graduate school to get advanced training in archaeology before his tragic death in 2019. His parents, Patricia and Les Cappetta, established an endowment in his name to honor his memory and lifelong passion for archaeology that will support, in perpetuity, other aspiring archaeology students to attend graduate school and achieve their dreams of becoming professional archaeologists. They hope that others will be inspired to contribute to the endowment.

    The Matthew Tobin Cappetta Archaeological Scholarship provides funding for graduate students (M.A. or Ph.D.) studying archaeology or ethnoarchaeology of the American Southwest and the South American Andes. Eligible applicants must have a 3.0 GPA. The scholarship committee encourages applications from students who are affiliated with historically underrepresented groups.
