The University of Alaska Museum of the North recognizes the need to support research on our collections by interested students and scholars. The Museum offers a small number of grants and fellowships to students for research related to our collections.
The Otto William Geist Fund was established by Otto Geist in 1963 to support:
- Acquisition and conservation of archeological or paleontological material for the University.
- Financing in whole or in part expeditions for archeological or paleontological field research.
- Scholarships or fellowship grants for undergraduate and graduate students in archaeology or paleontology. Proposals from other fields are considered if strongly tied into these disciplines.
