The Craft Student Travel Fellowship honors Elisabeth Roberts Craft (1918 - 2010), a longstanding member and supporter of the Washington D.C. Society of the AIA. This award assists promising students in the field of archaeology by defraying the costs of attending the Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America. 

Taking place in various cities around the USA, the four-day conference features presentations and workshops on the latest research from the field, showcases innovative site preservation strategies, and provides opportunities to meet presenters and learn about recent discoveries. (For more about the next conference, visit the AIA website.) 

As this year's Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America takes place virtually, the Craft Student Travel Fellowship for 2020 will cover registration fees for a select number of qualified applicants. Stay tuned!

NB: Students who wish to present a paper or poster at the Annual Meeting of the AIA should note the deadlines in August and November. (Find out more information here.)
