Call for Applications
Eugene Cruz-Uribe Memorial Student Grant
American Research Center in Egypt, Northern
The Board of Directors of the Northern California Chapter
of the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) is
offering one grant of $1,500 to a qualified undergraduate
or graduate student during the 2018-19 academic year.
Deadline for applications is Friday, October 19, 2018. The
award will be presented at the ARCE NorCal chapter’s
November 11 meeting.
Applicants must either be enrolled at a Northern
California college or university (Monterey to the Oregon
border) or come from a hometown within that area.
They must be pursuing a degree that incorporates Egyptian
anthropology, archaeology, art, history, museum studies or
language, or Coptic or Arabic studies in any period. Proof
of enrollment may be required.
To apply, students must submit 1) a CV and 2) a brief
proposal (250-500 words) of how they will use the grant.
Possible uses include – but are not limited to – research,
travel, or preparation of a student-led exhibition, course
or media project. The grant will be awarded based on
merit. In case of a tie, the winner will be determined by
a random drawing from the qualified applicants.
The grant honors a beloved chapter member, the late
Professor Eugene Cruz-Uribe, an Egyptologist specializing
in the Greco-Roman period who was killed in a bicycle
accident March 12, 2018. A recently retired professor of
history at Indiana University East at the time of his
death, Prof. Cruz-Uribe taught at California State
University, Monterey Bay from 2007 to 2013.
Applicants for the grant in his honor should send their
materials by email to ARCENorCal@gmail.com by the
October 19 deadline. If possible, the recipient will be
expected to accept the award in person at our November
meeting in Berkeley.
