For those of us researching grant opportunities, particularly prehistory, here's a great opportunity to get dusty. Something we all love!
The Begole Archaeological Research Grant (BARG) program grant opportunity that supports research in the Colorado Desert District (CDD) parks and in other areas of the California and Baja California Desert regions that may have direct connections with or scientific applications to CDD parks.
Two grants are available annually. Funds requested can be up to $5,000 for each research project. The deadline for proposal submissions is Tuesday, May 31, 2016 . Submit complete applications by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (link sends e-mail). Successful applicants will be notified by July 1, 2016.
Please direct questions on the grant and application process to Chuck Bennett (link sends e-mail), Begole Archaeological Research Grant Committee at 760-485-2984.
There are no restrictions on the topics of the research proposals, as long as they are archaeological in scope and/or focus. Priority may be given to original research dealing with the earliest periods of prehistory. Applicants may be registered undergraduate or graduate students, faculty and/or titled researchers at academic institutions, staff of federal, state or county agencies, employed in the private cultural resource management sector or independent scholars. The BARG is funded through an endowment created by pioneering Anza-Borrego Desert State Park archaeologist Robert S. Begole.
