Call for Donations to the ASSC Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid Program

Call for Donations to the ASSC Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid Program

Dear ASSC Member:

On behalf of The Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid Committee, we are requesting contributions from ASSC members interested in supporting the  Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid Program. The Grant-in-Aid Program was established to assist graduate students in their thesis or dissertation research. The goal of the program is to award funds ranging from several hundred to one thousand dollars to graduate students researching topics pertaining to South Carolina archaeology.  This includes both the historic and prehistoric time periods for terrestrial and underwater 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 are $50 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, Features and Profiles, unless contributors prefer to remain anonymous.

Please make donations payable to the ASSC and mail to :

Archaeology Society of South Carolina
1321 Pendleton St.
Columbia, SC 29208

If you prefer, you may also make a contribution via PayPal by using the link on our website

Thank you in advance for your continued support of this important program.
