Research and Excavations

You are invited to join us in the thrill and excitement of discovery.

Director's Fieldwork Fund

Since its inception, the Museum has sponsored over 300 excavation and research expeditions around the world. It continues to be one of the world's leading intellectual centers of archaeological and anthropological discovery.

Central to our mission is the Museum's ambitious program of ongoing fieldwork and research. For this reason, the Penn Museum has established the Director's Fieldwork Fund, through which its friends can support the varied and diverse projects that take place every year with a gift of any size.

Student Fieldwork Fund

The Penn Museum has established the Student Fieldwork Fund, through which its friends can support student opportunities to share in the thrill of discovery and receive hands-on training in archaeological techniques. Undergraduate and Graduate students have participated in excavations in the Mediterranean, Near East, Egypt, and Central and South America.

Your support for the Student Fieldwork Fund provides one or more students with a stipend for airfare and some living expenses while they work. The average stipend awarded per student is $1,500. Donors may elect to support one or more students for a single or multi-year period.
