Support our Students
We encourage you to participate in our giving program, in order to support undergraduate and graduate student scholarships and fellowships in Archaeology. A variety of endowments have been set up, most in the name of current or past students, staff and faculty members in the department. You may donate any amount to these endowments, and thus increase the scholarship funds available to our top students each year:
The Alexia Sepideh Kiaii Memorial Endowment Fund is awarded annually to a graduate student in the Department of Archaeology who must travel to conduct research necessary for the completion of their dissertation or thesis. Preference is given to students studying classical archaeology.
The Cathy and Jon Driver Archaeology Department Special Initiatives Endowment Fund is an annual award that enhances the intellectual life of the Department of Archaeology by creating opportunities for its students, staff and faculty members to benefit from external speakers and special events.

The Archaeometry Prize is awarded annually to an undergraduate or graduate student who has demonstrated exceptional scholarship and an interest in the application of the Physical Sciences to Archaeology.
The Robin Mercer Memorial Bursary is awarded annually to an undergraduate student majoring in archaeology who is in financial need. This bursary was established in memory of Robin Mercer, a former alumnus of Simon Fraser University in the Faculty of Arts.
The Brian Williamson Memorial Award in Archaeology is awarded annually to a student who has declared a major in Archaeology and who intends to use the award to help defray travel costs to participate in field research in Archaeology or Physical Anthropology.
