The Tehuti Research Foundation will provide grants for studies concurrent with our mission objectives. This research foundation will sponsor and finance research by various disciplines, of Egyptian texts and monuments. Research will examine the ancient writings and other modes of expression (art, architecture, etc) from a new perspective. The Foundation may work with universities and colleges towards sponsoring and financing such research. Some of these studies may be pilot studies that will encourage larger projects with greater funding. In this way, important new ideas gain legitimacy.
General Ideas for Research Undertakings:
In order to build the interdisciplinary study of the Ancient Egyptian civilization, the Foundation will cooperate with established colleges and universities to facilitate the accreditation of research towards undergraduate and post-graduate studies.
It is also our goal to establish or support named professorships in selected universities and as a result, T.R.F. will become accredited as a higher education institution specializing in Ancient Egypt.
Any person interested in research with T.R.F., shall first complete the short application Press here.
Tehuti Research Foundation (TRF) has and continues to have on-going research projects. The ultimate objective of our research is to truly understand the Ancient Egyptian civilization. We feel that the most effective way to carry out our objectives is to have Research Circles, i.e. several people studying/researching the same topics and sharing their findings and thoughts. Ultimately some of these findings will become a part of a book published by TRF. Participation in such Circles will vary from the weekend researcher to the full-time researcher, with varied compensation for their efforts.
To join a Research Circle, the member must be active. Egyptian natives are requested to participate in all Circles, to at least provide feedback about traditions, practices, wisdom sayings, proverbs, …etc., that relate directly/indirectly to the on-going research and findings. We are looking for the stuff that was not taught in schools, even (especially) if it does not make sense and/or seem primitive/backward, …etc. Ancient traditions never die. The list of research activities are noted above. New subjects/suggestions are welcome at all times. If you are interested in any particular subject/issue, or would like to suggest a new area of research, complete the short application: Press here.
Procedures within a Research Circle
A moderator will be assigned to each circle. Every message from a circle member will be circulated to other members of the circle. Comments, questions, discussions, etc., will follow from other members of this circle. The moderator will keep the work in focus and on track.
The exchange of messages will be posted on the TRF website for viewing by the members (present and future).
Any comments/feedback/suggestions are welcome at any time.
Compensation for individual researchers will vary according to the effort and results, and also according to the individuals. Some people are passionate about the research, and are willing do a lot of work, not expecting anything in return. I’m sure there will be some people who want the “full course” for every step they make. TRF is a non-profit organization, and we have to be responsible, honest, and professional to our donors, as well as to ourselves. TRF will bend over backwards to those who have the passion, and will find a way to compensate them, even if they are not expecting it (possibilities include: gifts, books, acknowledgement in published books, considered as a co-author of a book and getting the appropriate royalty, free travel and accomodation in Egypt, membership on the Board of Directors, and/or direct payment if necessary). So, compensation depends on each individual case.
Can be achieved through private contribution and from the publishing branch of T.R.F., which publishes books as a result of these research projects, and outside sources as determined by the governing board. Public governmental and foundation grants, from all countries are welcome, for the purpose of establishing and constructing research programs.
