University and School Partnerships

Partner with Us!

ARI offers internships and project-based work for students interested in archaeology and non-profit careers. We offer AmeriCorps funding and educational scholarships for select opportunities. We are hoping to launch our Register Professional Archaeology Field School in summer 2022 that will provide a place for students to meet all requirements for field school experience

Currently we are partnered with colleges and universities from several states and plan to double that in 2022. Interested in partnering with us or sending your students to our field school? Contact us for more details at 


The Archaeological Research Institute (ARI) recognizes that the land we study and steward is the homeland of many peoples. We acknowledge the myaamia (Miami), Shawanwa (Shawnee), Peewaalia (Peoria), Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo) and the multitude of nations who call this their homelands.  

ARI recognizes the violence inflicted upon the indigenous Nations of the Ohio Valley, including their forced removal following treaties such as Fort Finney and Greenville. ARI condemns the intentional destruction of their languages and cultures. ARI condemns the continuous discrimination against the living Native peoples throughout the United States.  

ARI recognizes that these peoples are not of the past, but are vibrant living nations. ARI recognizes that Native Americans are a diverse, resilient people with a deep enduring history worth knowing.  In that light ARI extends our respect to all Native peoples both past and present.
