As the February 1st application deadline approaches we’d like to remind you of the Foundation’s newest grant program: the Engaged Anthropology Grant.
This program is designed to enable past Wenner-Gren grantees to return to their research locale to share their research results with the community in which the research was conducted, and/or the academic/anthropological community in the region or country of research. There are two application deadlines per year, February 1 and August 1, and the grant will provide up to $5,000 for expenses directly related to these activities.
To be eligible to apply for the Engaged Anthropology Grant, you must have already received a Wenner-Gren Dissertation Fieldwork or Post-Ph.D. Research Grant, and the proposed engagement activities must be a direct outgrowth of this research. Applications for each deadline are only accepted within five years of the approval date of the original Wenner-Gren Grant. Applicants also must have completed their Dissertation Fieldwork or Post-Ph.D. Research Grant and fulfilled all final reporting requirements before being eligible to apply. Former Dissertation Fieldwork grantees must also have received their Ph.D. before the grant is awarded. Applicants who were awarded an Engaged Anthropology Grant last season will not be eligible to apply for a different engagement project tied to the same Dissertation Fieldwork or Post-Ph.D. Research Grant.
Everyone at Wenner-Gren is excited about this new program and its potential to facilitate continued engagement of our grantees in their research area and to ensure that the results of the research are shared locally in the most appropriate manner.
We hope that you will be equally excited about the Engaged Anthropology Grant. For more information about this program and how to apply, please visit this page.
