Budget and Funding
SNAP Budget 2014
Last year a team of 10-12 of worked for three weeks for a cost of c. $15,000, a figure that included the initial outlay for project computers and survey equipment that will not be necessary for the 2014 season. This season, we estimate that 10-12 of us working for four weeks (in cheaper accommodation) will cost c. $15,000 based on the following expenditure:
Bureaucracy (permit, CIG memberships etc) - $900
Accommodation - $4000
Food - $8000
Transport (car rentals, gas, ferry tickets to Naxos) - $1500
Equipment (artefact bags/storage crates, recording sheets etc) - $600
TOTAL - $15,000
Money raised thus far: $5000 – while we wait to hear back from one more grant application, donations are much needed to make sure SNAP 2014 goes ahead. All donations are processed officially through McMaster University, and as such are tax deductible. If you are interested in the Project, please help us reach our goal – thank you!!!
While we shall be sharing our work with the public, we also rely on YOU to help our project run. If you would like to support our young team of researchers continue to make ground breaking discoveries at Stélida then please consider donating to SNAP.

SNAP’s 2013 season was generously funded by grants from the Institute for the Study of Aegean Prehistory (INSTAP), and the Arts Research Board of McMaster University. SNAP was also loaned a TOPCON total station by the INSTAP Study Center for East Crete (INSTAP-EC).
