The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) 

The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA), founded in 1879, is North America's oldest and largest archaeological organization. The AIA works to create an informed public interest in the cultures and civilizations of the past and supports archaeologists, their research and its dissemination. The Institute promotes the ethical practice of archaeology and advocates for the preservation of archaeological heritage. The AIA educates people of all ages about the significance of archaeological discovery and encourages community-based outreach. Today, the AIA has over 200,000 members and 110 local societies in the United States, Canada, and overseas. AIA members include professional archaeologists that conduct fieldwork in Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, and North and South America, students, and archaeology enthusiasts.


Each year the AIA offers fellowships for travel and study to deserving scholars and a number of scholarships and grants for students, publications, and its local societies. Through its Site Preservation program the AIA supports projects in more than a dozen countries around the world. The AIA and its members are dedicated to the greater understanding of archaeology, the protection and preservation of the world's archaeological resources and the information they contain, and the encouragement and support of archaeological research and publication.
