Applications for AAHS Research Grants

February 15th is the deadline to submit proposals for the annual Research and Travel Grants. The Research Grant fund promotes current research by professionals, students, and avocationalists. The Travel Grant provides funds for individuals to travel, usually to students who are presenting at professional conferences to share their ideas and research.Each year AAHS gives out over $6,000 in a competitive process to support research in archaeology and anthropology in the US Southwest or Northwest Mexico. You must be an AAHS member to apply. Follow the link above for all details.

Becoming Hopi Receives 2020 Subvention Award

We are pleased to announce this year’s $5,000 Subvention Award has been given to Wesley Bernardini, Stewart B. Koyiyumptewa, Gregson Schachner, and Leigh Kuwanwisiwma for their book “Becoming Hopi: A History” to be published by the University of Arizona Press. We received a number of outstanding and worthy requests. In making the award the AAHS Publications Committee noted:

“This volume presents the results of 15 years of collaboration between the University of Redlands, UCLA and the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office. The authors have taken particular care to make the book appealing to a wide audience (including academic, tribal, and popular readers), avoiding academic jargon, using sidebars to explain technical concepts, and presenting methodological detail in ‘supplementary information’ sections at the end of chapters rather than breaking the flow of text within chapters. The book contains more than 300 color photographs, as well, and the authors indicate that the subvention will help to make it more affordable for readers.”

The purpose of this program is to provide money in support of the first publication of digital or print books or Kiva journal articles that further AAHS’s mission. Many sources of grant funding do not support publication costs. Through this program, AAHS can provide occasional funding to prevent this barrier to the sharing of research results.
