  • Two grants up to $5000 each are awarded annually.
  • Priority may be given to original archaeology research dealing with the earliest periods of prehistory.
  • Archaeology grant pplicants may be registered undergraduate or graduate students, titled researchers at academic institutions, staff of federal and state agencies, or independent scholars.

Proposals are usually submitted annually by the end of May. The Begole Archaeology Research Grants are awarded in July.
