Are you interested in ships and seafaring, history, early man, and archaeology? Covering nearly 3/4 of the Earth’s surface, water is the source of all life on our planet. Beneath the surface of our oceans, lakes, rivers, and wetlands lies a physical record of humankind preserved in prehistoric and historic shorelines, shipwrecks, inundated cities, harbors, and other traces of our past.
Dive into our web site and discover for yourself the many facets of underwater archaeology and the people and projects worldwide that are involved in this fascinating field.
The Advisory Council on Underwater Archaeology is pleased to announce the 2014 ACUA George Fischer Student Travel Award. This award of $1,000 (USD) will be offered to help fund travel costs for the upcoming 2014 SHA Conference in Quebec City, Canada. This award will be granted to an international student presenting a paper on an underwater or maritime archaeology topic at this conference.
To be eligible for consideration, students interested in applying must currently be enrolled and in good academic standing in a graduate degree program (includes full-time, part-time, or thesis/dissertation hours only). Preference is given to international students. International students are considered to be those students residing in a country other than the country where the conference is being held.
To apply for this award you must submit the following:
1) Curriculum vitae
2) Short cover letter
3) A short essay on the subject to be presented at SHA; 1,000 words maximum.
