Archaeological Society of SC Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid Pledge Drive!!

Help support South Carolina Archaeology by donating to the ASSC Grant-in-Aid Program!

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 at 5:30pm until Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at 12:00am

The goal of the Grant-in-Aid Program is to award funds ranging from several hundred to one thousand dollars to graduate students researching topics pertaining to South Carolina archaeology. Donations to the Grant-in-Aid Program promote research that advances our knowledge of the history and prehistory of South Carolina and of the United States. To date, this program has assisted the research of more than 40 students and has been instrumental in allowing a number of archaeologists to move on and become respected members of the academic and applied archaeology professions.

Suggested donation amounts start around $25 from individuals and $100 from organizations and businesses. However, no contribution is too small, and all are tax deductible. Contributions to the Grant-in-Aid fund will be acknowledged in the Society's newsletter and on the ASSC’s website, unless contributors prefer to remain anonymous.

Please make contributions before April 10, 2012 to support this year’s Grant-in-Aid recipients. Donations can be made via PayPal by using the link on our website:

Thank you in advance for your support of this important program!

[Editors Note: I was one of the fortunate recepients of funding from this program and it was invaluable in terms of allowing me to do testing that strengthened my thesis. It is a worthy cause that I give to and I hope you will consider it as well.]
