Funding Opportunity – SPatial Archaeometry Research Collaborations Program

The 2021-2022 application season for the SPARC (SPatial Archaeometry Research Collaborations) Program is open! SPARC is an NSF-funded Archaeology and Archaeometry program dedicated to promoting geospatial research in archaeology, hosted by the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies at the University of Arkansas and Dartmouth College. SPARC offers direct support to archaeological projects through awards in three categories: Fieldwork (on-site data collection), Data & Analytics (preparation, processing, and analysis of geospatial data), and Publication (presentation, publication, and archiving of complex geospatial datasets). New to 2021-2022 are funded, short-term residencies at either CAST and Dartmouth for visiting scholars to undergo face-to-face research collaborations, utilize or train on equipment and facilities, or develop publications.
