The Multicutural Program Committee: Scholarship Funds
Support for participation in Texas Archeological Society activities (Archeology Academy, Field School, Annual Meeting) is provided through outreach efforts under the
Multicultural Program Committee’s scholarships: Collegiate Scholarships, Diversity Program Scholarships, and Native American Field School Scholarships. Each scholarship area is administered by a subcommittee whose members review all applications and choose the recipients, or in the case of the Native American Field School Scholarship subcommittee, solicit recipients from appropriate Native American groups. Donations are sought to provide funding for the scholarships that are awarded to chosen applicants. Money awarded will stay within the confines of the money received from donors, and is not limited to revenues (interest…) accrued on the donated funds.
