The 2017–2018 Lister Fellowship application period is now closed. An announcement seeking applications for the 2019–2020 Lister Fellowship will appear in the summer of 2019. The following describes the Lister Fellowship and provides links to information about previous Lister Fellows.
The Florence C. and Robert H. Lister Fellowship was established in recognition of the lifelong achievements of the late Florence and Robert Lister, noted archaeologists, dedicated educators, and friends and supporters of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center. The purpose of the fellowship is to assist graduate students who show promise of making a significant contribution to the archaeological knowledge of cultures of the Southwest. Recipients of the Lister Fellowship are awarded a stipend of $10,000 to help support the final stages of their research and the writing of their dissertations. A single fellowship is offered in alternate years and is not renewable.
Applicants for the Lister Fellowship must be enrolled in a Ph.D. program at a recognized university in North America. Students whose projects are based on archaeological, ethnoarchaeological, or paleoenvironmental research in the southwestern United States or northern Mexico are eligible. In some years, the fellowship may be restricted to individuals whose research focuses specifically on the archaeology of the northern San Juan region, an area of particular research interest to the Listers.
