The Institute for Aegean Prehistory (INSTAP) was established as a non-profit organization (501K) in the United States in 1982.

INSTAP supports research into the civilizations of the Aegean and related areas from the Paleolithic to the beginning of writing in Greek, traditionally set at the first Olympiad in 776 BC.

Regretfully, due to the uncertain global health and financial situations, INSTAP will NOT offer any type of grants for our 2021 financial year, which extends from July 1, 2020 through June 20, 2021.

Final or Interim Financial and Research Reports for all 2020 INSTAP grant awards are due by November 1, 2020.
