The Peyton Wright Memorial Fellowship

The Peyton Wright Memorial Fellowship is a $1000 yearly award that allows an Archaeology graduate student to undertake a research project leading to a master's or doctoral degree. The purpose of this fellowship is to provide support for a specific scholarly investigative project. It is intended to cover costs associated with that research project.

Peyton Wright was a graduate of the Department of Anthropology and a professional archaeologist. In his memory, his family and friends have established a fellowship program to aid other students in completing their graduate work in Archaeology.
