Valerie Sonstenes Student Research Fund

The Ontario Archaeological Society (OAS) is once again accepting applications for the Valerie Sonstenes Student Research Fund. The fund is intended to support student research that relates to and advances knowledge of Ontario’s archaeological record.  This fund provides a student with a small grant (up to $1000.00) to assist them in undertaking new research for Honour’s, Master’s, or PhD projects.

UTM Anthropology Graduate Carrels

UTM Anthropology has a limited number of carrel desks available for UTM-affiliated Anthropology graduate students to use. However, due to the on-going precautions required to prevent spreading of COVID-19, the use of the carrels are suspended until further notice.  

Our hope is to be able to re-open these spaces in the future.  For future use, please note that graduate desk assignment is not automatic, so please contact the Departmental Assistant at if you would like more information about the process. Please note that desks are typically shared due to the limited number available, so you should not expect to have an unshared desk.

Please remember that all in-person meetings should be avoided.  However, if an in-person meeting is required,  Teaching Assistant work and meetings with students may take place in assigned TA office spaces and physical distancing and face masks should be worn, and should not take place in the carrel area. 

UTM Graduate Lounge

The UTM Association of Graduate Students (UTMAGS) has a lounge for UTM-affiliated graduate students. The lounge is located in Room DV 2068B. Visit the UTMAGS Graduate Lounge web page for more information.
