Support the Cyprus Research Fund and
Mediterranean Archaeology at UND

The Cyprus Research Fund provides resources to support student and faculty research in Mediterranean Archaeology at the University of North Dakota. Since 2004, the Department of History has conducted annual field work in the Mediterranean at sites in Cyprus and Greece. The flagship project, the Pyla-Koutsopetria Archaeological Project, will begin its seventh season of fieldwork this May. In 2009, the project will involve over 30 undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members from universities in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. To date, over 70 volunteers have participated in the project and brought their energy, creativity, and collaborative spirit to the University of North Dakota's research in the Mediterranean world.

Donations to the Cyprus Research Fund provide research opportunities for students both in the Mediterranean and on the campus in Grand Forks through digital media, campus speakers, and collaborative contacts with colleagues around the world. For more information on the University's archaeological research programs in the Mediterranean read our blogs, check out our documentary, read our annual newsletters (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) and visit our website.
