F. Lewis Orrell Jr. Bequest Curriculum Development Award

AAHS awards multiple grants annually with a total of $5,000 awarded per year for curriculum enhancement related to the archaeology, history, or anthropology of the American Southwest. Most awards range between $300-$750.00. We are accepting proposals from any public or public-charter elementary, middle, or high school located in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico or Utah. Grants will be granted on a competitive basis. These grants are available thanks to a generous bequest to AAHS from F. Lewis Orrell Jr.

One of the missions of AAHS is to expand diversity and inclusiveness in the fields of history, archaeology and anthropology. We believe that one way to accomplish this is to expose children to these fields at an early age.
