Anthropology Dissertation Research Support Award

This award is given to PhD Candidates to help fund research, travel, and other expenses related to the completion of their dissertation research. (Students seeking support for pre-dissertation field research should consider applying for a Richard W. Lieban Endowed Scholarship instead.) Up to four (4) awards of $2,500 each will be made annually, pending the availability of funds. To be eligible, students must have convened their graduate committee, have completed all coursework and comprehensive exams, and have successfully defended their departmental research proposal. To apply, students should submit a letter of support from their faculty advisor, a copy of their most recent student progress report, and a letter of intent that includes: 1) the aim and importance of the activities proposed; 2) an itemized budget of travel and other costs associated with these activities; and 3) a list of previous, current, and pending sources of research funding.

Application deadline: March 15. Students may only receive this award once during their graduate career in the department.
