Education

Title 1 Fund Partnership with the Legacy Program

In May 2015, SWTAS was awarded an AIA Society Outreach Grant to support the Title 1 Fund of the Legacy Program at the UTSA Center for Archaeological Research. Legacy is a community outreach program coordinated by Whitney Lytle. Among their many activities, they are constantly presenting at San Antonio schools about archaeology, anthropology, and the importance of stewardship of the past. Their Title 1 Fund makes it possible for them to visit as many Title 1 schools as possible each year and thus reach more kids and teachers! SWTAS is very proud to support this program and be a part of growing community awareness of archaeology in San Antonio.

Student Memberships Fund

The AIA – SWTAS has established a fund to promote student membership in the Archaeological Institute of America. It is open to undergraduate and graduate students with interests in archaeology, art history, classical studies, and ancient history. Applicants should submit a statement of interest to Joe Lamm at any of the lectures or via e-mail inchicorejoe@hotmail.com (to avoid spam filters, please clearly “SWTAS student membership” in the subject line and do not send attachments).

SWTAS will award as many memberships as contributions allow. Funds will be disbursed on a first-come basis; a waiting list will be maintained. Awards will be announced at each lecture, as funding becomes available.

Every October, as funds permit, a student will be chosen (from the list of recipients and the waiting list) by lot to attend the AIA Annual Meeting. Travel and hotel funds and convention fees will be included in the amount given to the student.

Donations to the SWTAS Student Membership are welcome and useful at any time. To contribute, please contact Joe Lamm at   inchicorejoe@hotmail.com or 210-367-1782.

Thank you!
