Who Can Apply: Eligible students are predoctoral students in any discipline related to archaeology who have had a paper accepted by the Program for the Annual Meeting Committee for presentation at the 2022 Annual Meeting of the AIA and who have checked the box labeled “Graduate student paper award” on the Open Session Submission Form that reads, “I am a graduate student and sole author of this paper and wish to be considered for the Graduate Student Paper Award.” If you are presenting as part of a session, you need to remind your session chair to check this box for you when they submit all of the session materials.
Only graduate students who have a paper accepted by the Program for the Annual Meeting Committee and have checked the box on the Submission Form will be eligible for the award. Accepted papers should then be submitted by email and in their entirety to the Graduate Student Paper Award Committee for award consideration. All submissions are by self-nomination and remain anonymous throughout the award selection process. The full written paper along with images must be received by the award deadline. In substance and form, the paper that is delivered should be the same as that submitted.
