Carryl B. Martin Research Award
In late 2015 the Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society received a substantial bequest from the estate of Carryl B. Martin, an avocational archaeologist and long time member of AAHS, specifically to support our research program.
A single award of $5,000.00 will be given annually to a high-quality archaeological or historical research project that focuses on significant questions in the archaeology of the Southwest United States or Northwest Mexico. In the spirit of Carryl Martin projects that allow opportunities for participation by avocationalists will receive special consideration.
Application Deadline: Applications will be accepted electronically between November 1, 2016 November 30, 2016. All applicants must be members of AAHS.
Applications will be reviewed by the AAHS Research Grants Committee and the awardee confirmed by the Board of Directors. AAHS reserves the right to not award a grant in any cycle if no proposal of sufficient merit is received. The following elements will be considered in the review of applications:
1. What is the potential for the proposed activity to advance knowledge and understanding of the archaeology of the Southwest United States or Northwest Mexico?
2. To what extent do the proposed activities suggest and explore creative, original, or potentially transformative concepts?
3. Is the plan for carrying out the proposed activities well-reasoned, well-organized, and based on a sound rationale?
