Julie Herzig Desnick Endowment Fund for Archaeological Field Surveys
The Julie Herzig Desnick Fund will provide grants to archaeologists to start new archaeological survey projects. The awards are intended for projects involving field survey on the ground or a combination of field survey and remote sensing methods, rather than those based entirely on satellite imagery or other remote sensing data. Geophysical survey projects are also eligible. While all are encouraged to apply, preference will be given to archaeologists at an early stage in their careers (within 8 years of the receipt of the PhD).
Projects may concern any location in the world and any time period. Each project should make innovative use of technology, and the fieldwork proposed should be designed to address important questions about the human past. In 2017, the Herzig Desnick Fund will be combined with the AIA Fieldwork Fund, for a total award of up to 5,500 USD.
