Field School Opportunity in Belize

The Maya Research Program is a U.S.-based non-profit organization that sponsors archaeological and ethnographic research in Middle America. Each summer since 1992, they have sponsored archaeological fieldwork at the ancient Maya site of Blue Creek in northwestern Belize. In 2011 they offer opportunities to participate in their field program and learn about the Maya of the past and today.

The Blue Creek project is open to student and non-student participants, regardless of experience. The field school is certified by the Register of Professional Archaeologists and participants will receive training in archaeological field and laboratory techniques.

Academic credit and scholarships are available. (Please note the scholarship application deadline is April 1, 2011. Please see for further information.)

Students and volunteers are invited to participate in the Maya Research Program’s 20th year of our Blue Creek archaeological project in Belize.
