ARCE is the primary professional organization for American Egyptologists and scholars interested in studying Prehistoric, Pharaonic, Coptic, Arab, and Ottoman Egypt. We maintain a wide range of scholarly and educational activities both in the United States and in Egypt. Among our members are the top American universities and museums with interests in Egypt.

Through our programs and publications, ARCE is also internationally recognized as a preeminent Egyptological organization. ARCE fulfills its mission through its active support of archaeological excavation, monument conservation, professional training for Egyptian colleagues, fellowship program, public outreach, and publication.

Educational and research institutions are welcome to submit applications to become Research Supporting Members.
