  • Scholarship Description
  • The SAA is committed to assisting individuals in realizing their goals of entering careers in archaeology by offering two categories of scholarships: the HUGS and the HUGS-IFR.

    HUGS: This scholarship can be used for a field school, to volunteer on a project directed by a professional archaeologist, or to receive other forms of archaeological training. This particular scholarship, however, cannot be used for a field school run by the Institute of Field Research (IFR). There will be up to two scholarships for undergraduate students and up to two scholarships for graduate students.

    HUGS-IFR: This scholarship is provided by the Institute of Field Research (IFR) and is to be used for an IFR archaeological field school in the Summer. IFR will cover the program tuition for a student who attends an IFR field school. Students cannot receive the cost difference as cash payment. Applicants must clearly state which IFR field school they wish to attend using this scholarship, and they must show that they have been accepted into that field school.

    Eligibility:
    -You must be a member of historically underrepresented minorities in archaeology
    -You must be a citizen or legal resident of either the U.S. or Canada
    -At the time of application, you must be enrolled in a regionally accredited university in the United States or Canada, or if outside the United States, a university with equivalent accreditation
    -If the applicant is a graduate student, s/he must be in their first or second year of graduate studies. The applicant cannot already have an M.A./M.S. degree at the time of application
