Excellence Award

The Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies, Inc. (FAMSI) supports research projects that promise significant contributions to contemporary knowledge of ancient Mesoamerican cultures, and disseminates such contributions via the FAMSI website.

The Foundation's directors have determined that they may, on occasion and entirely at their discretion, select an outstanding research report whose author will be recognized with an Excellence Award of $1000. The directors will distinguish Final Reports that exemplify excellence in illustrated presentations of the data, descriptive analyses, and considered syntheses.
