ACUA & RECON Offshore Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Student Travel Award ~ Call for Applications
The ACUA is excited to join efforts in supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of underwater archaeology with RECON Offshore, a Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) providing cultural resources solutions in maritime archaeology. Thank you RECON for your generous annual donation to the student travel award. We share your commitment to a more inclusive underwater archaeology. https://reconoffshore.com/
The ACUA will be offering the ACUA & RECON Offshore Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Student Travel Conference Award, providing $1,000 to defray travel costs for a student who is presenting a paper or poster on an underwater or maritime archaeology topic at the 2023 annual meeting in Lisbon, Portugal. The goals of this travel award are to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion and to encourage student involvement at the meetings. Diversity is inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, abilities, and socioeconomic background. Applicants that self-identify as diverse are encouraged to apply.
Conference abstracts must be submitted directly to the Conference Organizers as outlined in the SHA Call for Papers. Please refer to https://sha.org/conferences/ for complete details on abstract submission and deadlines. To be eligible for consideration, students applying for this award must currently be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program (includes full-time, part-time, or thesis/dissertation hours only), and in good academic standing.
