Grants | Antiquities Endowment Fund (AEF) Grants

ARCE has opened its new round of applications for Antiquities Endowment Fund (AEF) Grants 2021-2022. Created with resources from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) as allocated by the U.S. Congress, ARCE's Antiquities Endowment Fund (AEF) sustains an ongoing grants program to support the conservation, preservation and documentation of Egypt's cultural heritage and the dissemination of knowledge about that heritage. 

The Antiquities Endowment Fund awards one-year and three-year grants for discrete and highly focused professional projects that serve the conservation, preservation and documentation needs of Egyptian antiquities that are more than 100 years old. Projects may involve the actual conservation or protection of sites, buildings or objects; the participation of conservators or other appropriate specialists in antiquities projects; the training of conservators and students; or the production of publications and presentations that disseminate knowledge about Egypt's cultural heritage.

The application process for the ARCE AEF Short and long Term Grant takes place in one round (to be submitted by 12 midnight EST on February 15th, 2021) although submission of draft proposals are encouraged (by December 20th 2020), to which program staff will respond with suggestions and advice.
