Call For Proposals: Collaborative Heritage Management in the Republic of

Date Due: December 19, 2014

Project Description:
The American Research Institute of the South Caucasus (ARISC) invites
proposals from collaborative teams in support of the preservation and
conservation of the Republic of Armenia’s archaeological and historical
heritage. This ARISC program, generously funded by Project Discovery!, seeks
to foster joint work between American and Armenian scholars and institutions
dedicated to the proper curation and preservation of heritage materials such
as artifacts, sites, and manuscripts. Successful applications will demonstrate
substantive collaborations that not only contribute to heritage conservation
but also demonstrate efforts to build capacity and enhance local knowledge of
current techniques and approaches to heritage management. These grants require
active participation of both American and Armenian principal investigators in
all aspects of the collaborative project.

Examples of potential projects include:
- Restoration of threatened archaeological remains
- Stabilization of historical resources
- Long-term protection for archaeological sites or historical monuments
- Curation and permanent exhibition of heritage materials
- Cataloging and recording of collections
- Digitization of heritage materials for wider public access
- Enhancement of conservation lab facilities
- Advanced training for specialists

Given the level of funding, these awards can also be used as seed grants to
demonstrate the feasibility of a pilot program and/or in concert with funds
from parallel sources.

Grantees will be required to either give a talk or run a workshop pertinent to
the subject of the grant while in Armenia.

Award Information:
Awards are usually made for a period of 12 months during which the work
described in the proposal must be completed. Extensions will be granted only
with the explicit approval of ARISC. Grants will typically not exceed $4000.
