The Ohio Archaeological Council will consider applications from undergraduate and graduate students participating in either academic or non-academic archaeological field schools.

The second is a letter of support from the appropriate field school director outlining why they believe you should be considered for the scholarship. And, the third is submittal of a brief essay that outlines your research, aspirations, and scholarship need.
