National Awards for Anthropology Students

No anthropology experience would be complete without the opportunity to pursue hands-on work, or the opportunity to make your own mark on the field. Many prestigious national awards seek to recognize students in anthropology who have been inspired by their coursework and want to use it as a launching pad to make a positive difference in the world.

Students who are excelling in their studies should strongly consider applying for the following awards. These opportunities range from undergraduate merit scholarships to postgraduate research opportunities to graduate school fellowships. To find the awards that best fit your intellectual track and personal aspirations contact Director of Fellowships Advising Brit Chase or visit the Office of Fellowships Advising website.
