CAA Student Conference Travel Grant

Student Travel Grant

The CAA/ACA is able to offer assistance to student conference participants to offset their travel costs. Grants apply only to the travel portion of conference expenses and not accommodation. Grant applicants must be members in good standing and must participate directly in the scholarly program of the Annual Conference by presenting a paper or poster for which they are the first (primary) author, or by being a Session Discussant or an Invited Presenter.

Applicants must submit a completed application form (you must be logged in to access the application form on the Members Only page) along with original travel receipts for travel expenses claimed, no later than July 1st of the year in which the conference was held. Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for funding. All eligible applications will receive an equivalent percentage of their expenses. Preference will be given to student members who have not received support in immediately preceding years.

The CAA executive and the 2014 Organizing Committee are happy to announce that the 2014 annual meeting will be held in London, Ontario, from May 14-18, 2014.

Located near the heart of downtown London, the Hilton London Ontario will host all sessions, professional meetings and the banquet on May 17. The conference provides a lively, intellectually stimulating space for scholars and members of the archaeological community to discuss, learn, and share ideas, observations, and the results of archaeological research with their peers. The conference is for anyone with an interest in, and concern for, archaeology in their local community or on a national or transnational level.

Registration will start in the late afternoon of May 14 in the hotel’s upper lobby. Sessions and workshops will start on the morning of Thursday, May 15 and will finish on the afternoon of Sunday, May 18th. The banquet will be held on Saturday evening, May 17th. A guest speaker has not been chosen yet and field trips are being finalized; however expect tours of the Lawson Site and the Ontario Museum of Archaeology and Sustainable Archaeology.

The intersection of settler and Aboriginal nations past and present, a hub of academic and commercial archaeology, and site of exciting new archaeological initiatives, London and Southwestern Ontario welcome the 2014 Canadian Archaeological Association’s Annual Meeting. Looking forward to seeing you here!

Session and Forum proposals will be accepted until January 17th, 2014. Individual paper and poster submissions will be accepted until February 14th, 2014.
