Grant of the Week: Antiquities Endowment Fund (AEF) Grants

Karen Lou | Feb 1, 2021

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the Antiquities Endowment Fund (AEF) Grants.


The American Research Center in Egypt (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 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.


The amount fluctuates. For long term grants, funds are limited to $300,000. For short term grants, funds are limited to $100,000.

End: February 15, 2021
