    The Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society (AAHS) is pleased to announce the 2021 competitive subvention award program for AAHS members. The purpose of this program is to provide money in support of the first publication of digital or print books or Kiva journal articles that further AAHS’s mission. Many sources of grant funding do not support publication costs. Through this program, AAHS can provide occasional funding to prevent this barrier to the sharing of research results. This year, awards up to $5,000 will be considered.

    Please see the attached flyer for more information on the award criteria. Please share with your authors for whom this might be applicable.
