Excavation Scholarships

Rogers Excavation and Survey Scholarship

The CAI Rogers Excavation and Survey Scholarships offered through the GWU Capitol Archaeological Institute will be awarded to students at The George Washington University who are in need of financial assistance to participate in an archaeological excavation or survey. These scholarships will expand available opportunities for students pursuing studies in archaeology that have the desire or need to participate in archaeological excavations or surveys, regardless of whether or not they have prior experience.

The CAI Rogers Excavation and Survey Scholarship fund will provide up to twenty (20) scholarships of $1,000 each, in two separate categories, with ten (10) scholarships in each category. It will be offered in years that the Warren Fellowship is not available or as a supplement to the Warren Fellowship. In all cases, priority will be given to those applicants participating in a GWU archaeological excavation or survey and to those students who are majoring in archaeology. The first category shall be for those students who will be participating in an excavation or survey for the first time. The second category shall be for those students who have already participated in one or more excavations or surveys previously, but who need financial assistance to participate in another season.
