The ACUA is excited to join efforts in supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of underwater archaeology with RECON Offshore (https://reconoffshore.com/), a Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) providing cultural resources solutions in maritime archaeology.
The ACUA & RECON Offshore Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Student Travel Award provides support in the amount of $1,000 (USD) to a student currently studying maritime archaeology or a related field who is presenting a paper or poster on an underwater or maritime archaeology topic at the annual Society for Historical and Underwater Archaeology conference. The goal of this travel award is to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion and to encourage student involvement at the meetings. Diversity is inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, abilities, and socioeconomic background. Applicants that self-identify as diverse are encouraged to apply.
