The ACUA is excited to join efforts in supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of underwater archaeology with RECON Offshore, a Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) providing cultural resources solutions in maritime archaeology. Thank you RECON for your generous annual donation to the student travel award. We share your commitment to a more inclusive underwater archaeology. https://reconoffshore.com/
The ACUA will be offering the ACUA and RECON Offshore Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Student Travel Conference Award, providing $1,000 to defray travel costs for a student who is presenting a paper or poster on an underwater or maritime archaeology topic at the 2023 annual meeting in Lisbon, Portugal. The goals of this travel award are to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion and to encourage student involvement at the meetings. Diversity is inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, abilities, and socioeconomic background. Applicants that self-identify as diverse are encouraged to apply.
