New Curriculum Development Award

For some time now your AAHS Board has been discussing effective ways to increase the diversity in the activities supported by the Society. To this end the board has recently voted to create a new program to aid in promoting understanding of the wide range of prehistory, history, or anthropology of the American Southwest. Called the Frank R. Orrell, Jr. Bequest Curriculum Development Award, this new program shall make available up to $5000 a year, from the income generated from the Frank R. Orrell, Jr. Bequest endowment fund, for new and exciting curriculum development.

AAHS is making available grants of up to $5,000 per year for curriculum development related to the archaeology, history, or anthropology of the American Southwest. We are soliciting proposals from any public or public-charter elementary, middle, or high school located in Pima or Santa Cruz Counties.  Awards will be granted on a competitive basis.

The application deadline for this award is February 28, 2018 for awards to be made during the interval from June 2018 through December 2018. Applications should be submitted through the AAHS website between February 1st and February 28th. For more information.
