Riaz Malik Research Grant Program through the Council for Minnesota Archaeology
Ongoing applications accepted (no deadline)
The CMA offers research grants to support projects that advance the study of Minnesota archaeology. Examples of appropriate uses include specialist analytical costs (such as a radiocarbon date or time on a scanning electron microscope), or laboratory or field supplies intended for a specific research project (bags, vials, chemicals, etc). The monetary amount of each grant awarded is determined by the selected applications and the availability of funds. Based on the program’s history, we expect the current awards to not exceed $800. Student projects have priority. If no viable student applications are received, the grant is available to CMA members
Required for application:
- Description of research project, with role of Research Grant defined;
- Detailed budget and schedule;
- Letter of support from applicant’s academic advisor (for student projects)
Electronic submissions are welcome (a single PDF file is preferred). Applications will be reviewed by the grants committee, and recommendations forwarded to the full CMA membership at the December 14, 2019 meeting. Applicants will be informed of the membership’s decision immediately following the meeting. Funds will be made available to successful applicants as soon as possible after the notification.
Send applications to: Steve Katz – CMA Vice President and Chair of the Grant Committee at email@example.com
