Illinois Association for Advancement Archaeology
Permanent Fund Grants
The IAAA Permanent Fund has been awarding annual research assistance grants since 2004. These grants are open to avocational, professional, student, and educational groups for archaeological related projects conducted within the state of Illinois. In 2024, the IAAA Permanent Fund will award up to three $400 grants. The deadline for grant applications is the end of the day, Monday, January 15, 2024. The IAAA has initiated a new website (www.iladvancearchaeo.org) and grant guidelines and the 2024 application form will soon be posted there. If the guidelines and application form are not found within the website, they can be obtained by contacting the IAAA Permanent Fund Chair at the address listed below. Note that a change has been made to our grant guidelines which affects past grant recipients. Prior grant recipients must now wait one year after their grant year before re-applying for another grant.
The IAAA Permanent Fund sustains funding for the grants through an endowment and other funds and welcomes any donations to help support this effort.
Send any questions on the grants to IAAA Permanent Fund Chair, Doug Jackson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
