Coordinating Council for Women in History (CCWH) - Catherine Prelinger Award
The CCWH Catherine Prelinger Award will be awarded to a scholar of excellence. This award, named for Catherine Prelinger, a former CCWH president and nontraditional scholar, is intended to enhance the work of a contemporary scholar whose academic path has not followed the traditional path of uninterrupted study, moving from completed secondary, to undergraduate, then graduate degrees, followed by a tenure-track faculty position.
American Sociological Association (ASA) - Fund for the Advancement of the Discipline (FAD)
The American Sociological Association invites submissions for the Fund for the Advancement of the Discipline (FAD) awards. Supported by the American Sociological Association and the National Science Foundation, the goal of this program is to nurture the development of scientific knowledge by funding small, groundbreaking research initiatives and other important scientific research activities such as conferences. FAD awards provide scholars with “seed money" for innovative research that has the potential for challenging the discipline, stimulating new lines of research, and creating new networks of scientific collaboration. The award is intended to provide opportunities for substantive and methodological breakthroughs, broaden the dissemination of scientific knowledge, and provide leverage for acquisition of additional research funds.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Cultural Anthropology Program - Senior Research Grants
The primary objective of the Cultural Anthropology Program is to support basic scientific research on the causes, consequences, and complexities of human social and cultural variability. Anthropological research spans a wide gamut, and contemporary cultural anthropology is an arena in which diverse research traditions and methodologies are valid. Recognizing the breadth of the field’s contributions to science, the Cultural Anthropology Program welcomes proposals for empirically grounded, theoretically engaged, and methodologically sophisticated research in all sub-fields of cultural anthropology.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Cultural Anthropology Program - Cultural Anthropology Scholars Awards
The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces an opportunity for methodological training by cultural anthropologists who are active researchers. The purpose is to help cultural anthropologists upgrade their methodological skills by learning a specific analytical technique which will improve their research abilities.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Archaeology Program - Senior Archaeological Research
The goal of the Archaeology Program is to fund research which furthers anthropologically relevant archaeological knowledge. In accordance with the National Science Foundation’s mission such research has the potential to provide fundamental scientific insight. While within the broad range of “archaeology” the focus is on projects judged to be significant from an anthropological perspective, the Program sets no priorities based on time period, geographic region or specific research topic.
University of Southern Indiana (USI) - Center for Communal Studies - Research Travel Grant
The Center for Communal Studies at the University of Southern Indiana annually invites applications for a Research Travel Grant to fund research at the Communal Studies Collection at USI's David L. Rice Library. The Communal Studies Collection's rich archival materials hold information on over 600 historic and contemporary communal societies, utopias and intentional communities. A complete listing of communities can be found on the library website.
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.
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.
Wenner-Gren Foundation - Post-Ph.D. Grants
Post-Ph.D. Research Grants are awarded to individuals holding a Ph.D. or equivalent degree to support individual research projects. The program contributes to the Foundation's overall mission to support basic research in anthropology and to ensure that the discipline continues to be a source of vibrant and significant work that furthers our understanding of humanity's cultural and biological origins, development, and variation. The Foundation supports research that demonstrates a clear link to anthropological theory and debates, and promises to make a solid contribution to advancing these ideas. There is no preference for any methodology, research location, or subfield. The Foundation particularly welcomes proposals that employ a comparative perspective, can generate innovative approaches or ideas, and/or integrate two or more subfields.
Henry M. Jackson Foundation - Public Service Program Grants
The public service program is guided by Senator Henry M. Jackson's ideals and inspired by his example. The foundation seeks to foster a public service ethic in the next generation of leaders and to leverage national resources and awareness to increase public and community leadership, civic engagement and volunteerism.
