~  Student Bursary Awards  ~

$tudent Bursaries have arrived for APA's member$

University students struggle financially... we've all been there and, with the profession of archaeology not exactly being the most lucrative, many of us have been paying off student loans and debts well into our careers. APA is in a position to assist the next generation of CRM professionals and researchers, at least in a modest way.

Two Student Bursaries will be awarded once per calendar year to two Student members in the amount of $750 each.  Each bursary would be the approximate amount of tuition for 1 single-semester course.

“The APA Indigenous Post-Secondary Student Bursary” and “The APA Post-Secondary Student Bursary”

- Deadline for Application: January 31st of each calendar year 

- Value: $750
