Graduate Student Departmental Awards
The Department of Anthropology offers a number of awards to graduate students in recognition of their outstanding accomplishments in our program. The departmental awards and prizes include the following: the Luther S. and Dorothy C. Cressman Prize Competition; the Malcolm McFee Memorial Endowment Award; the Pauline Wollenberg Juda Memorial Endowment Fund Award Competition; Health Education Award; and the Theodore Stern and Homer Barnett Fellowship. In addition, archaeology graduate students are eligible for the Cheryl L. Harper Fund Scholarship and biological anthropology PhD students are eligible for Thomas L. Johnston and Helene S. Johnston Scholarship funds (for more information on Thomas Johnston, click here). Each award carries a different prize, which may include support for conference participation, support for research, summer support, professional development funds, or opportunities to develop and teach your own course. Solicitations are made for each award via the departmental listserv at least two weeks before the application is due. See below for more information and speak with your advisor.
