Mary Suzanne Savage Field Research Scholarship

Mary Suzanne Savage Field Research Scholarship

We are pleased to announce a competitive scholarship opportunity for undergraduate students pursuing majors in Anthropology with a focus on Archaeology. Awards of $750 to $1,000 will be available to undergraduates to fund off-campus archaeological field research in the Americas. Funds can be used toward fees and expenses associated with attending a field school or participating in a field research project directed by a faculty member or advanced graduate student.

Completed applications, which should be collated into a single PDF in the order below, must be submitted to the Director of Undergraduate Studies by April 1. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

Award rules

  • Student award winners will be required to attend the Anthropology department spring reception in order to receive the award.
  • Priority is given to students with demonstrated financial need and students who have not previously received the scholarship. The award can only be used to cover travel expenses and fees (not tuition).
  • The award is for archaeological field research. Collections-based research is not covered.
  • The Americas is defined as the New World. It is not limited to the U.S.
