One of FAMSI’s primary missions was to fund research projects for students and scholars working in a variety of fields related to Mesoamerica. From 1994 until 2007, FAMSI funded 445 research projects, distributing over 3.2 million dollars. Reports submitted by these grantees were digitized, translated and posted to the original website, and some of these reports remain the only published account of a site or project. LACMA is pleased to host these grantee reports here on AncientAmericas.org so that students and scholars may continue to benefit from their findings.
In the future the reading room will expand to include publications produced by scholars in collaboration with LACMA’s Program for the Art of the Ancient Americas.
