The Wenner-Gren Foundation grant and fellowship programs are very competitive. On average we fund in the neighborhood of 15% of the applications received. For this reason, we encourage all applicants to explore opportunities for funding and other services offered by a variety of outside organizations. Check out our newly updated page on alternate funding sources for a list of organizations focused on anthropological research and scholarship. Another useful resource is the fellowships and support page on the American Anthropological Association (AAA) website.
