The Study Center Needs a New Truck

Our 1996 Mazda pickup truck has been a workhorse for the Center and its associated archaeological projects for two decades. Over the years, it has hauled approximately 1,100,000 lbs (550 tons) of equipment, soil samples, and archaeological finds throughout eastern Crete. We need your help to raise the $30,000 needed for a new truck. Please donate!

Support the Richard Seager Fellowship

The Richard Seager Doctoral Fellowship was created in 2009 with the goal of helping doctoral candidates use the Study Center's resources to bring their dissertations closer to completion. With your help we can reach our goal of $4,000 and offer the fellowship to a qualified applicant. To date, nine fellowships have been granted, and we hope that with your donations we can offer a 10th fellowship!

Support the Hawes Fellowship

The Hawes Post-Doctoral Fellowship for Gender Studies was introduced in 2015 with the goal of incorporating gender studies in Aegean Bronze Age archaeology to highlight aspects of ancient life that have not yet received sufficient attention. Established with the generous support of the Ms. Foundation for Women, this fellowship is open to those in the fields of Anthropology, Art History, Ancient History, or Classics, and the recipients will use the Study Center's resources in their research. With your help we can reach our goal of $3,000-$6,000 to offer the fellowship to qualified applicants. Two fellowships were granted this year, and we hope that your donations will enable us to continue with this new scholarly endeavor!

The Capital Campaign

Please help support us in our mission to investigate Cretan prehistory from the earliest times through the early Iron Age, with an emphasis on Minoan Civilization. Our work continues a 100-year tradition of archaeology by Greek and foreign scholars and annually provides state-of-the-art technical and excavation support. 2017 marks our 20th year of operation, and with your help we can ensure another 20 years of archaeological excellence on Crete!
