The German Archaeological Institute (Deutsches Archäologisches Institut or DAI) is pleased to announce the availability of two research fellowships for AIA members who are working in North American institutions. The purpose of the fellowship program is to encourage and support scholarship of the highest quality on various aspects of archaeology and to promote contact between North American and German archaeologists.
In 2012, the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut will offer two post-doctoral research fellowships to scholars of archaeology based in North America who wish to use the library facilities of the DAI in Berlin. Applicants need not be U.S., Canadian or Mexican citizens.
The fellowship includes travel expenses for the Fellow, a stipend of 24 Euros/day plus 4.12 Euros/day for research expenses, and residence in the DAI's guest house.

Fellowships - AIA Site Preservation Grant - Archaeological Institute of America - Deadline: 15 October 2012
This grant is intended to fund projects that uphold the AIA's mission to preserve and promote the world's archaeological heritage for future generations. The goal of the grant, which carries a maximum value of $25,000 to be awarded over the course of one to three years, is to maximize global preservation efforts and awareness through AIA support. The AIA is targeting projects that not only seek to directly preserve archaeological sites, but those that also emphasize outreach, education, and/or best practices intended to create a positive impact on the local community, students, and the discipline of archaeology as a whole.
The AIA endeavors to stimulate archaeologists and cultural heritage institutions to work together to implement site preservation. As the AIA encourages partnerships with other organizations to complement rather than duplicate efforts, specific portions of larger preservation projects as well as stand alone projects will be considered.
In addition to direct funding, the AIA will work with the grant recipient to raise public awareness of the significance of archaeological sites and the threats they face, to implement and disseminate best practices, and encourage increased support for preservation efforts. The AIA will promote projects that receive grants through its annual meeting, newsletter, and website.
