Grants of up to $3,000 to Nevada individual students at IHEs to conduct studies in eligible subject areas that promote the preservation of the State's cultural heritage. Funding is intended to support projects conducted by both graduate and undergraduate students. Eligible studies include research on the archaeology of the Great Basin or American Southwest and its implications for the prehistory or history of Nevada. Additional funding may be awarded to successful applicants for travel to the research related conference and presentation meeting.

The Nevada Archaeological Association (NAA) and Am-Arcs of Nevada are pleased to announce the third Joint NAA/Am-Arcs Student Research Grant Competition. 

In addition and new this year, students who are awarded the NAA/Am-Arcs Student Research Grant will be eligible for the Steve Daron Memorial Student Travel Grant, a separate grant to fund travel to the NAA annual meeting and the Am-Arcs meeting at which the recipient is required to present. This new grant will serve two purposes:

  • First, it will allow the NAA to provide a limited number of free hotel rooms for students who are attending the annual meeting.
  • The second purpose of the grant is to fund travel costs for students who are awarded the NAA/Am-Arcs Student Research Grant to assist them in attending the next NAA annual meeting and a future Am-Arcs meeting (in Reno) at which recipients are required to present. After the NAA/Am-Arcs Student Research Grant awards are announced at the annual NAA meeting, recipients will receive additional information about the travel grant.

This year, NAA will also award $150 to the top student paper and the top student poster. Interested applicants should indicate student status when submitting an abstract. To be eligible, a student must be the lead author, but co-authored submissions are acceptable. If two or more students are co-authors, the prize money may be split.
