The Funk Foundation’s New Grant Cycle

We are happy to announce that The Robert E. Funk Memorial Archaeology Foundation, Inc. is now accepting proposals for grants for research into New York State archaeology.  Grant applications must be received by April 30, 2017.  The grant applications will be reviewed by the Funk Foundation Board of Directors in a competitive process with award decisions made by June 15, 2017.  Further information including the grant application forms and guidelines may be found on the Funk Foundation website.  If you have any questions, please email Funk Foundation President Ed Curtin at, or call Ed at (518) 884-7102.

The 2017 grants are for amounts in the range of $1,000.00-$2,500.00.  They are ideal to assist parts of stand-alone research projects or studies that are parts of larger projects.  For example, Funk Foundation grants have been made to support a range of services such as faunal analysis, radiocarbon dating, petrographic slides, lithic analysis, and remote sensing.
