Dumbarton Oaks Project Grants

Dumbarton Oaks makes a limited number of grants to assist with scholarly projects in Byzantine Studies, Pre-Columbian Studies, and Garden and Landscape Studies. The normal range of awards is $3,000–$10,000. Support is generally for archeological research, as well as for the recovery, recording, and analysis of materials that would otherwise be lost. Eligible projects may include, but are not limited to: non-destructive investigation and/or excavation of a site or a component of a site, materials analyses, surveying or photographing monuments and objects that are at risk. Pre-Columbian project awards are intended only to survey, excavate, and/or document sites, landscapes, or objects that are in imminent danger. Applicants should provide evidence that such sites, landscapes, or objects are under immediate threat. Project grants are limited to applicants holding a doctorate or the equivalent. Before applying, applicants must contact the appropriate Director of Studies, no later than October 1, 2009, to determine if the project is within the purview of Dumbarton Oaks.
