Application and Registration

The application form is available here (opens as a fill-able PDF). Enrollment is limited, and applications received by March 5, 2018, will receive priority. Application review will begin immediately after that date, and applications will be accepted until the course is filled. The field school is limited to 14 students, graduate and undergraduate.

Funding: Qualifying undergraduate students will receive a stipend of $3000 to offset the cost of attending the field school through the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program (NSF Award No. 1560465). REU students must be US citizens or permanent residents enrolled in an undergraduate program (bachelor’s or associate’s degree) who have not yet received a bachelor’s degree at the time the field school begins.

Note that there is no separate application process for the REU funding; all eligible students who attend will receive the stipend. Graduate students and foreign students may also attend the field school, but are not eligible for the REU program.

Tuition and Fees: Once accepted, students may register for a three-credit lab course and a four-credit field course through the University of Arizona. The courses are Anth 455a and 455b, section 2 (undergraduate credit) or Anth 555a and 555b, section 2 (graduate credit). Please check with your advisor about transferring University of Arizona credits to your home university.

Tuition and fees for University of Arizona summer school are the same for in-state and out-of-state students. Summer 2018 tuition has not yet been set, but in 2017 was $3,198 for undergrads and $3,548 for graduate students for seven credit hours. Non-UA students must also pay a one-time application fee of $65 when registering for courses. A $1,200 course fee covering lodging and transportation costs associated with the field school is due at registration.
