Crow Canyon Archaeological Center is now taking applications for the 2018 Native American Scholar in Residence program.
The program is designed to highlight the personal experiences and cultural perspectives of a native scholar with the intention of broadening knowledge about the human experience in the past and present for students and staff.
The selected scholar will reside on the Crow Canyon campus for six days, and will have the opportunity to participate in field and laboratory activities, classroom teaching (indoor and outdoor), evening program delivery, and brown-bag lunch seminars during the designated program week to facilitate direct interactions with students. The scholar will work with program staff to develop any additional curricula activities—such as field trips, home/community visits, demonstrations, service learning projects, and other activities that will enhance program delivery and experiential learning.
Crow Canyon offers the scholar housing in a modern home, consisting of a living room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bath, and a private, enclosed yard. The scholar will have access to a computer and Internet service and, except for long distance calls, Crow Canyon will pay utilities. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided by Crow Canyon from Sunday night through Saturday morning. Additionally, a travel stipend of up to $300.00 (with receipts) and honorarium of $1,200.00 ($200.00 per day for six days) will be awarded.
