Please check back often as we will be listing additional award recipients.
Dan Fallu, Boston University Department of Archaeology graduate student has been awarded the long term GRAF. The GRAF is specifically for his field work and residency in Greece. The bulk of the funding will be put towards coring the banks of the Chavos River (part of the natural fortification of Mycenae) in order to develop a history of sediment dynamics. The main goal of this coring is to determine if a dam (yet to be discovered architecturally) created a reservoir that resulted in the eventual burial of the site.
The AIA Pomerance Fellowship will pay for dating (carbon and osl) and isotope analysis to understand the effect of climate perturbuation on the stratigraphy at Mycenae.
Archaeology student Jonathan Ruane has been awarded the Graduate Research Abroad Fellowships, to support his research in Guatemala this Spring and Fall. The Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and the Humanities Foundation have established this fellowship primarily intended for students in the Humanities and the Social Sciences, where the opportunity to conduct foreign research is often crucial and where sources of funds are limited. The long-term GRAF provides $10,000 to cover living, travel, and research expenses. This award also provides, while the student is abroad for one year, Continuing Study Fees and participation in the BU student health plan.
