The Grant County Archaeological Society (GCAS) is inviting applications for the GCAS/Nancy Coinman Grant Awards for 2020. Two awards in the amount of $1000 each will be offered 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. Previous Coinman recipients are ineligible to apply for one grant award cycle.
Interested students must complete the Candidate Application Form in either hard copy or email format, using additional pages as needed. Please also include with the completed application two brief faculty or scholastic reference letters/letters of support. Hard copy application material may be mailed to the post office address provided below. Alternatively, if submitting the application by email, please scan the reference letters and email them and the completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application Deadline: March 1, 2020
The GCAS Board of Trustees will determine each recipient of a Coinman Grant Award. The GCAS Board of Trustees may consult with one or more professional archaeologists who are members of GCAS if and as needed.
The GCAS will notify selected applicants no later than April 1, 2020.
The GCAS will contact selected applicants on September 1, 2020, to request a brief email regarding the status of their project. The project for which the award is requested should be completed no later than December 1, 2020. This should be a stand-alone project resulting in a research paper not to exceed 15 pages with or without illustrations, suitable for publication on the GCAS website (https://www.gcasnm.org).
