Funding is provided to encourage high standards for excavations and fostering deliberate and ethical practices for research. Priority will be given to newer and smaller projects to help them get started and to discrete components of larger projects that can be completed with further funding.

The endowment also provides support for off-season research, analysis, and publications. Grants do not support travel for student volunteers.
