The Advisory Council on Underwater Archaeology is pleased to announce the opening of applications for the 2018 George Fischer Student Travel Award. The award provides travel support in the sum of $1,000.00 (USD) for international students in maritime archaeology to attend and present a paper at the annual Society for Historical and Underwater Archaeology conference. International students are considered to be those students who are residing and studying in a country other than the country where the conference is held. Visit the ACUA website at: https://acuaonline.org/about- the-acua/awards/ to download the application guidelines. The deadline to apply is September 15, 2017.
Please spread the word to your international colleagues and students. Past winners have hailed from the French West Indies, Argentina, United Kingdom, and Australia. We look forward to hosting another deserving student and meeting them in New Orleans in January 2018.
