Title: Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRIG) in Archaeology and Archaeometry (NSF 14-566)

National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: Open

Amount: $20,000 (direct costs)/1-3 yrs.
Description: The Archaeology Program supports anthropologically relevant archaeological research. This means that the value of the proposed research can be justified within an anthropological context. The Program sets no priorities by either geographic region or time period. It also has no priorities in regard to theoretical orientation or question and it is the responsibility of the applicant to explain convincingly why these are significant and have the potential to contribute to anthropological knowledge. While the Program, in order to encourage innovative research, neither limits nor defines specific categories of research type, most applications either request funds for field research and/or the analysis of archaeological material through multiple approaches. The Program also supports methodological projects which develop analytic techniques of potential archaeological value.
How to Apply: Applications accepted on a rolling basis. Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Liberal Arts Grants Services (lagrants@austin.utexas.edu) and return Proposal Review Form three weeks before you plan to submit to the sponsor.

Title: Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRIGs) in Archeology (NSF 11-547)

Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Deadline: Open

Amount: $20,000
Description: Grants to doctoral students are intended to improve the quality of dissertation research. These grants provide funds for items not normally available through the student's university. Additionally, these grants allow doctoral students to undertake significant data-gathering projects and to conduct field research in settings away from their campus that would not otherwise be possible. Proposals are judged on the basis of their scientific merit, including the theoretical importance of the research question and the appropriateness of the proposed data and methodology to be used in addressing the question. The NSF Archeology Program constitutes part of a larger Anthropological Sciences cluster and its focus is limited to research of clear anthropological significance. In a proposal the students should describe why their research is important from an anthropological perspective. *Note: NSF DDRIGs now require indirect costs be included in the budget. For the Archeology competition, indirect costs may be calculated in addition to $20,000 budget max.
How to Apply: Applications accepted on a rolling basis. Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Liberal Arts Grants Services (lagrants@austin.utexas.edu) and return Proposal Review Form 3 weeks before you plan to submit to NSF.

Title: Expeditions Council Grants

Sponsor: National Geographic Society

Deadline: Open

Amount: $15,000-$35,000
Description: The National Geographic Society is accepting applications for editorially driven exploration and adventure projects through its Expeditions Council grants program. To be considered for an Expeditions Council grant, proposed projects must have the potential to yield compelling stories and images. Applications are also judged on the qualifications of applicants and their teams, and on the project’s merit, uniqueness, and safety protocols. Although the council, which comprises representatives of various National Geographic editorial divisions, funds a broad range of exploration and adventure, applicants with a project based on scientific inquiry must provide detailed methodology. Applicants are expected to have qualifications and experience pertinent to the expedition or project they propose. Advanced academic degrees may be required, depending on the nature of the project. Those planning work in foreign countries (i.e., a country other than their own) must include at least one local collaborator as part of their expedition team. International applicants are encouraged; however, applications must be submitted in English.
How to Apply: Applications accepted on a rolling basis. Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Liberal Arts Grants Services (lagrants@austin.utexas.edu) and return Proposal Review Form three weeks before you plan to submit to the sponsor.
