Nancy Ruth Coinman, an archaeologist, university professor, and GCAS member, left a generous gift from her estate to the GCAS upon her death in 2015. Her surviving family made an equally generous donation to the GCAS in Nancy’s memory. These two gifts form the basis of the Nancy Coinman Grant Awards.
These Grant Awards are an essential component of the GCAS's mission. We offer them in furtherance of Nancy's and her family's wishes to help us recognize and support students of anthropology and archaeology in their efforts to study, preserve, and protect archaeological resources and culturally significant places.
For the second half of the 2018-2019 academic year, the GCAS is providing two awards in the amount of $750 each to PhD candidate(s) and/or Master’s-level student(s). All applications will be considered although the GCAS encourages applications by anthropology or archaeology students (Master’s degree students and PhD candidates) enrolled at an accredited university; upon projects related to topics unique to the Mimbres-Mogollon region or the greater Southwest region (the US Southwest and Northwest Mexico); and which indicate financial need or in-kind support.
The deadline for the GCAS to receive applications is December 1, 2018. Please pass this announcement on to your favorite graduate student as soon as possible.
