ACA Graduate Student Award
The Association of Consulting Archaeologists is pleased to announce the ACA Graduate Student Award, starting in 2018. The ACA Graduate Student Award is a $500 award that can be applied towards tangible costs related to Thesis or Dissertation research. The goal of the award is to provide funding for graduate students in Alberta, and worthy candidates from elsewhere, to conduct research using data developed by Alberta consulting archaeologists. This award is targeted towards students, at the Masters or Doctoral level, enrolled in graduate studies in an archaeology, anthropology, or related department at an accredited Alberta post-secondary institution. Consideration will also be granted to graduate students in similarly accredited programs elsewhere who have worked on archaeological consulting projects within Alberta and who have a letter of reference from a qualified permit holder in Alberta.
The ACA Graduate Student Award Committee would like to thank all the applicants for their proposals submitted for consideration for the inaugural 2018 award. The Committee is pleased to announce that the 2018 Graduate Student Award has been granted to Margaret Patton of the University of Calgary to assist in completion of her research program "Geophysical Surveys, Spatial Analysis, and Campsite Organization at Late Prehistoric Sites on the Northwestern Plains". Congratulations Margaret!
