Undergraduate Research and Conference Participation Awards
The Department of Anthropology strongly encourages undergraduate student participation in research. We thus offer up to six awards a year to support faculty-mentored research and/or travel to present research at a professional conference. The competition takes place annually in the fall term. Applications are evaluated by the Departmental Awards Committee.
