Field School Applications


The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center College Field School For Undergraduates is a great experience for students interested in archaeological research. Funded in part by the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Sites program, students actively engage in research alongside professional mentors within the framework of a long-term research project, the Northern Chaco Outliers Project.

This seven-week, experiential program will bring together undergraduate students, including American Indian and other underrepresented populations, and professional archaeologists for the purpose of providing authentic and professional opportunities for student engagement in collaborative, on-going research. Program dates are May 17—July 10, 2021.

Our goal is to provide students with the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to join the work force and to pursue advanced degrees, emerging as the next generation of professionals, educators, and leaders within the sciences.

Students will receive extensive preparation in:

  • designing and conducting empirically-derived research;
  • archaeological theory;
  • excavation and survey methodology and laboratory analyses;
  • and archaeological law and ethics.

Tuition for the program includes instruction, housing and meals. Scholarships are available through partner organizations, and students are encouraged to check with their academic department, their college or university, and their local or statewide archaeological society for sources of scholarship support. 

Apply today! The application deadline for 2021 College Field School for Undergraduates is March 19.
