Will one stage come first and then another follow it

This preview shows page 3 - 4 out of 4 pages.

Will one stage come first, and then another follow it? This may require a bullet list, table, or a calendar-like presentation. Try to be realistic, but don't worry about the factual details here too much; I won't hold you responsible for the accuracy of these figures. If you are planning a survey, you might estimate around 5 person-days per square kilometer; for stratigraphic excavations, maybe around 4 person-days per cubic meter; for lab work or other work, use your imagination. Excavations usually require at least as much lab time as digging time, just for the initial sorting, recording, and storage of the artifacts, even before specialist analyses are done. Real values for these things vary widely, but remember, everything takes longer than you think! : Budget : A simple list with a total. Try to include everything you can think of, although you may lump certain categories like "field equipment" without going into all the details. Again, I won't hold you to the accuracy of these figures, although I ask you to make some effort to be realistic here. You may want to include salaries for skilled and unskilled workers; plane fares and/or other travel costs; vehicle rental, purchase, maintenance, gas, etc.; food and housing in the field if necessary; rent for lab space in the field, if necessary; field equipment; lab equipment; supplies like bags, xeroxed field forms, etc.; film and processing; radiocarbon dating (estimate $200 per date, assuming this is an NSF proposal); and so on. Some of this will depend on the schedule of the project (for example: "3 meals a day for 60 days for 7 people, at $15 per person per day = $6,300"). You may not have to cover all these expenses through the budget; student volunteers might pay their own plane fare, or local workers might not get housing or food in addition to their wages, if the project is near their homes. I suggest that you try to keep your budget under, say $30,000. The higher the cost, the more spectacular the results you have to promise the granting agency for it. : Bibliography : Mostly for the sources you cite in the background section, but possibly for other material as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
