2017 Register of Professional Archaeologists’

Field School Scholarship Award

 

Each year the Register and three of its sponsoring societies (SAA, AAA, and AIA) can provide scholarships for students attending Register-certified archaeological field schools. Each sponsoring society can award one scholarship in the amount of $1,000. The scholarship is sent to the director of a Register-certified field school, and the director is then free to award the scholarship to a deserving student, or more commonly, divide the award between two students.

 

This year, the SAA awarded $1,000 to the University of North Georgia’s Sicilian Archaeological Field School. This field school is investigating Iron Age through Medieval occupations of Monte Bonifato. The school’s director is William M. Balco, Jr., Ph.D., RPA. Dr. Balco divided the $1,000 award between two deserving students: Isabella Martino and Chloe Perry. Isabella Martino is an undergraduate student at the University of North Georgia, with a double major in both Studio Art and Chemistry, with a minor in Anthropology. In her field school application, she stated that “This wonderful opportunity of studying abroad will be my very first time overseas, and I anticipate acquiring and practicing the necessary skills of cultural immersion and respect, as well as hands-on archaeological field study and research with my professor and peers. This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience I will always remember.”

 

Chloe Perry is currently studying History with a minor in Anthropology at the University of North Georgia. After graduation, she plans on getting a Masters in Archaeology and with the goal of becoming a museum curator. In her application, she stated that “By participating in the Sicily Field School, I hope to improve my archaeology skills, learn about the history of the sites we will excavate, and experience what it means to be an archaeologist.”
