This ARISC program, generously funded by Project Discovery!, seeks to
foster joint work between American and Armenian scholars and
institutions dedicated to the proper curation and preservation of
heritage materials such as artifacts, sites, and manuscripts.
Successful applications will demonstrate substantive collaborations that
not only contribute to heritage conservation but also demonstrate
efforts to build capacity and enhance local knowledge of current
techniques and approaches to heritage management. These grants require

citizen of the Republic of Armenia. Proposals must show evidence of
endorsement from all relevant institutions in Armenia in order to
demonstrate the feasibility of the undertaking. These grants are not
intended for primary research. The participants must demonstrate that
the project requires true collaboration between both PIs, as well as
active participation by both PI’s in all aspects of the work required
to complete the project.

described in the proposal must be completed. Extensions will be granted
only with the explicit approval of ARISC. Grants will typically not
exceed $3000.
