This annual $5,000 grant honors two of AAHS’s benefactors: Carryl B. Martin and F. Lewis Orrell Jr. whose bequests to the Society made this award possible.
A single grant of $5,000.00 will be given annually to a high-quality archaeological or historical research project that focuses on significant questions in the Southwest United States or Northwest Mexico. In the spirit of Carryl Martin and F. Lewis Orrell Jr. projects that allow opportunities for participation by avocationalists will receive special consideration.
