Jane C. Waldbaum Scholarships aim to support students who are planning to participate in archaeological field work for the first time. Students majoring in archaeology or related disciplines are especially encouraged to apply. The scholarship provides $1000 to help pay expenses associated with participation in an archaeological field work project for at least four weeks.
The scholarship is open to students who have begun their junior year of undergraduate studies at the time of application and have not yet completed their first year of graduate school at a college or university in the United States or Canada. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and must not have previously participated in archaeological field work of any kind. The selection committee will consider both academic achievement and financial need in its deliberations.
