The mission of the SAYGINER Foundation is to fund and otherwise encourage undergraduate, graduate and professional studies in archaeology in various universities and to provide financial and moral support for students and young practitioners who are eager to undertake research activities in their chosen fields.

The Foundation also supports students by providing supplemental classes, institutional matching for summer internships and with career coaching and mentorship activities to ensure each scholar can reach their full potential and fully benefit from the Foundation’s extensive network in arts & humanities.

The Foundation is committed to awarding merit and need-based scholars and values equity, inclusion, and access in all its programs and engagements.
