National Science Foundation (NSF) - Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences Program - High Risk Research in Biological Anthropology and-or Archaeology (HRRBAA)
This program is designed to permit the submission of high-risk, exploratory proposals that can lead to significant new anthropological knowledge. Because of a highly competitive environment, proposals that have both a high risk of failure and the potential for significant payoffs are less able to compete with standard research proposals. This program is designed to provide a mechanism whereby risky proposals with a great potential for advancement of the discipline can compete for funding. The risk involved in such endeavors must significantly exceed that associated with regular research projects. Two branches of the discipline represented by NSF programs -- Archaeology and Biological Anthropology -- utilize this mechanism.
L.S.B. Leakey Foundation - General Research Grants
The Leakey Foundation exclusively funds research related specifically to human origins. Priority of funding is commonly given to exploratory phases of promising new research projects that meet the stated purpose of the Foundation. The Leakey Foundation promotes a multidisciplinary approach to exploring human origins. The Foundation gives special encouragement to early career scientists asking new questions and seeking innovative ways to answer these questions about human evolution. Like venture capitalists, the Foundation understands that the greatest rewards come from taking the greatest risks.

Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition (BCFN) - BCFN Yes! Research Grant Competition
Since the very first edition, BCFN YES! has embodied the identity and the ambition of the BCFN Foundation. Indeed, it brings together young people from around the world, with different disciplinary approaches, and invites them to come up with practical projects to create a better balance between food sustainability and environmental sustainability. The goal of the contest is to find solutions to the food paradoxes, through innovative, practical and multi-disciplinary ideas. The 2018 BCFN YES! calls for concrete research proposals for making more sustainable the agri-food system (in terms of environmental, social, health and/or economic aspects), that are coherent with the BCFN research projects.

Wenner-Gren Foundation - Engaged Anthropology Grant
A Wenner-Gren grantee may apply for the Engaged Anthropology Grant upon completion of the final reporting requirements for the Dissertation Fieldwork or Post-Ph.D. Research Grant. This grant is designed to enable grantees to return to their research locale to share their research results with: 1) The community in which the research was conducted, and/or; 2)The academic/anthropological community in the region or country of research. The Foundation realizes that the appropriate form of engagement will vary depending on the type of project that was undertaken and the location of the research. Emphasis should be on disseminating the research results of Wenner-Gren funded research.
