INA is now accepting proposals for projects occurring in 2017. Visit the Project Proposal Page to download the INA Project Proposal form for 2017 projects. The Institute of Nautical Archaeology (INA) is a non-profit organization formed for the purpose of promoting scholarly, ethical research on shipwrecks and maritime sites around the world. INA seeks to assist archaeologists and researchers by providing institutional backing for fundraising activities, loaning equipment, or providing a modest amount of ‘seed money’ to projects. With the exception of the Claude Duthuit Archaeology Grant, most awards do not exceed $5,000.
Directors of INA-supported projects may be eligible for equipment loan from INA. Please visit the INA Equipment page to view a list of available items.
