NSF also will support fundamental science and engineering research projects whose results may enable our country to better prepare for, respond to, recover from, or mitigate future catastrophic events.
Wenner-Gren Foundation - Conference and Workshop Grants
The Wenner-Gren Foundation offers grants to bring international scholars together to develop anthropological knowledge and debate. In accordance with the mission of the Foundation, priority is given to events that foster the creation of an international community of research scholars in anthropology and advance significant and innovative anthropological research. Conferences are defined as public events that are comprised primarily of oral and poster presentations to a larger audience of anthropologists. Workshops are defined as working meetings that focus on developing and debating topical issues in theoretical anthropology. Workshops involve a small group of scholars who meet for a sufficient period of time to deal intensively with the topic.
