SAAA has established the Eugene Lyon Education Fund to support the needs of students as they pursue their studies in anthropology and related fields. By helping to fund activities such as research, field school and conference attendance, internships, paper presentations and publication, we hope to contribute to a new generation of archaeology. We intend this funding to become an annual event and are happily accepting donations toward this endeavor at this time - or at any time throughout the year.
