Site Preservation Grant

AIA Site Preservation Program

Deadline: November 1, 2019

The Site Preservation Grant is intended to fund projects that uphold the AIA’s mission to preserve and protect the world’s archaeological heritage for future generations. The goal of the grant, which carries a maximum stipend of $15,000, is to enhance global preservation efforts and promote awareness of the need to protect threatened archaeological sites. The AIA seeks to support projects that not only directly preserve archaeological sites, but those that also include public outreach and education components that create a positive impact on the local community, students, and the discipline of archaeology as a whole.

The application deadline for this year’s grant cycle is November 1, 2019.

  • Preventive measures: reburial, shelters, fences, walkways, water management (drainage, flood prevention)
  • Monitoring and maintenance of sites
  • Training of personnel in conservation and site management
