Research Fellowships

Graduate Research Fellowships


The Glenn Black Laboratory of Archaeology (GBL) offers research fellowships for graduate students of Indiana University Bloomington. These fellowships aid research for dissertation, thesis, or related projects that make use of the Glenn Black Laboratory collections and resources, and/or contribute to archaeology or ethnohistory of the Midwest. The GBL has millions of artifacts that derive from a range of sites and time periods. GBL also has the Erminie Wheeler-Voegelin Archives and Great Lakes and Ohio Valley Ethnohistory Collection, which provide unmatched resources for students interested in the Native American past. Students must be working with an IU faculty member who can provide mentoring and oversight for their research. GBL fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. Awards for work using GBL collections, fieldwork in the Indiana region, or work related to sites where GBL has worked receive high priority. Review and selection is made by the advisory committee for the GBL and senior lab staff. Send each proposal as a digital file to April K. Sievert, Director, GBL ( by February 25, 2019.
