Purpose

SAA established scholarship in honor of Arthur C. Parker (Seneca), first president of the SAA who served from 1935-36; and secured funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) which together support training in archaeological methods, including fieldwork, analytical techniques, and curation.

Eligibility

These scholarships are intended for current students - high school seniors, college undergraduates, and graduate students-and personnel of Tribal or other Native cultural preservation programs.  High school students must be currently enrolled as seniors to be eligible.  Undergraduate and graduate students must be enrolled in an accredited college or university.  Native Americans and Pacific Islanders from the U.S., including U.S. Trust Territories, and Indigenous peoples from Canada are eligible for these scholarships.  While documentation of Native identity is required, an individual does not have to be enrolled in a Native group, of certified Indian status, or a member of a group formally recognized by the U.S. or Canadian federal governments to be eligible for these scholarships.

General Information

These scholarships will support attendance at training programs in archaeological methods offered by accredited colleges or universities.  Other types of archaeological methods training programs will be considered on a case by case basis.  The scholarship awards may be used to cover tuition and expenses.  The cost of tuition for an award recipient will be paid directly to the training program.
