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 Laura Childs at any of the lectures or via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org (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 Laura Childs at email@example.com or 210-494-3820 (H) or 210-977-6100 (W) or Joe Lamm at firstname.lastname@example.org or 210-822-9329.
