Other Funding Opportunities (non-UTM)

Archaeology Division of the American Anthropological Association Student Membership Award and Student Diversity Travel Grant


The Max Planck-Harvard Research Center for the Archaeoscience of the Ancient Mediterranean (MHAAM), a collaboration between The Initiative for the Science of the Human Past at Harvard (SoHP) and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany (MPISHH), announces an opportunity for recent and graduating seniors and Master’s students to participate in a Young Investigator Symposium scheduled at Harvard University on Friday, November 2nd, 2018. Students will have an opportunity to present cross-disciplinary research which utilizes modern scientific tools and knowledge to illuminate the history of humanity, and to network with other students and faculty members similarly engaged. An interest in the Ancient Mediterranean is desirable but not indispensable.

For students coming from outside the Boston/Cambridge area for the November 2nd Symposium, a limited number of awards of up to $500 to defray lodging and travel costs are available.  Students interested in applying for the Symposium should arrange to send a letter of application, along with an abstract of research to be presented, a CV, an academic transcript, and a letter of recommendation, to be submitted by October 18th at the latest to sohpchair@fas.harvard.edu.
