ABOUT THE PROGRAM
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 grants for 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 actual conservation or protection of sites or buildings or objects; participation of conservators or other appropriate specialists in antiquities projects; training of conservators and students; or the production of publications and presentations that disseminate knowledge about Egypt's cultural heritage.
Grant Categories are: Conservation, Preservation and Presentation; Training of Egyptian Personnel; Student Training, and Publication Subsidies.
