Scholarship Profile: Megan Barr

Posted: July 27, 2011

Megan Barr, ’12, received the Engelbrecht Summer Fieldwork Scholarship for 2011, working with assistant professor of anthropology Susan Maguire at the Old Fort Niagara excavation from May through June.

A Buffalo native, Barr is majoring in anthropology with minors in forensic anthropology and museum studies. She said the chance to participate in the Archaeological Field School was an important part of her education at Buffalo State.

“It was a great experience,” Barr said. “I’d never done fieldwork before. I also got the chance to interact with the public, since part of your responsibility at the field school is to answer questions from people who are visiting the Old Fort Niagara site.”

Barr said her summer fieldwork experience will help her when applying for internships and will be an important addition to her résumé. After earning her bachelor of science degree next year, she plans to pursue graduate school and someday work at a museum.
