WISCONSIN ARCHEOLOGICAL SOCIETY RESEARCH AWARD (WASRA)

Proposal Deadline: March 15, 2018

The Wisconsin Archeological Society Research Award provides funding for students and avocational archaeologists conducting research pertinent to the state of Wisconsin. The WASRA was initiated by the Society Board in 2003. The award was created to provide limited funding to students and avocational archaeologists conducting research that contributes to the understanding of Wisconsin archaeology. WASRA recipients can use funding in an amount up to $500 for site mapping, surveying and reporting, specialized analysis, research travel, etc. Past recipients have used funds for documenting Paleoindian artifacts in a private collection, radiocarbon dates, remote sensing, and archaeochemical analyses.
