The American Research Center in Egypt

Northern California Chapter


Join us to explore the history and culture of Egypt from before the Pharaohs into the Age of Alexander and Cleopatra, Julius Caesar and Marc Antony; the rise of Christianity and its fall to Islamic conquerors; into the age of the Caliphs, the Mamelukes and Napoleon Bonaparte; and finally the rise of modern Egypt beginning with Mohammed Ali and the early European travelers and explorers, culminating in the Egyptian republic in its many changing forms.


Our thanks to Pyramid Brewing Company, Al-Masri Restaurant in San Francisco, and the individuals who supplied beer, food, beverages and supplies for our Hidden Treasures Fundraiser Event at the Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology in Berkeley on October 28, 2017. Your support is greatly appreciated.

ARCE-NC is offering two $500 grants this spring for undergraduate or graduate students pursuing research, travel, study, exhibition or presentation, or other projects related to Egyptology, Egyptian history, Arabic or Coptic studies. 

Eligible applicants must attend school or have a home address in Northern California. Details are in the attached PDF file. The application deadline is March 1 and the awards will be made March 18. 

We want to make sure all eligible students know about these awards. Please spread the word to faculty and students you may know. 

Many thanks,

Barbara Wilcox
Vice President
