About the Jackier Prize
Every object has a story to tell about the people who made it and those who used it or gave it value. The Eleanor and Lawrence Jackier Prize in Archaeology, which operated from 2013 to 2020, provided an opportunity for U-M undergraduate students to explore and discover the stories behind the objects at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. Made possible by the generous donation of U-M alumnus Lawrence Jackier and his wife, Eleanor Jackier, the competition was open to any undergraduate at U-M Ann Arbor, U-M Dearborn, and U-M Flint. The projects that best demonstrated excellence in archaeology were awarded a cash prize.
