The European Association of Archaeologists instituted the EAA Student Award in 2002. The prize is awarded annually for the best presentation at the EAA Annual Meeting by a student or archaeologist, working on a dissertation. Presentations are evaluated for their academic merit and innovative ideas by the Award Selection Committee. The Committee consists of representatives of the EAA Executive Board, and is chaired by the General Editor of the European Journal of Archaeology. The Award consists of a diploma and one or more book vouchers. The winner of the award is announced at the Opening Ceremony of the EAA Annual Meeting. The winning presentation will be considered for publication in the European Journal of Archaeology (EJA).
All BA, MA and Ph.D. students, as well as archaeologists working on a dissertation, who present a paper or poster at the Annual Meeting are eligible to apply, and are encouraged to submit their presentations to the Award Selection Committee. All co-authors (up to a maximum of 3 co-authors) must prove their student status; presentations co-authored by a thesis supervisor are not eligible. Please email a covering letter, CV(s) and draft of the presentation (2,000 - 8,000 words, ideally following the Notes for Contributors for the EJA) to the EAA Senior Manager, Sylvie Kvetinová: (firstname.lastname@example.org), before 20 August 2021.
