We invite you to participate in a research study titled “An Investigation of the Demographics and Processes of Research Funding in U.S. Academic Anthropology,” led by Dr. Laura Heath-Stout.
The purpose of the study is to understand the demographics of anthropology and how they shape decisions about research projects and funding applications. The study will use this information to evaluate the equity of granting agencies’ processes of soliciting applications, reviewing proposals, and making funding decisions.
You are eligible to participate if you have been a member of any of the following organizations at any time in 2016–2021: American Anthropological Association: American Association of Physical/Biological Anthropologists, American Board of Forensic Anthropology, American Society of Primatologists, Archaeological Institute of America, Register of Professional Archaeologists, Society for American Archaeology, Society for Apply Anthropology, Society for Historical Archaeology, Society of Forensic Anthropologists.
Participation is completely voluntary and does not affect your current or future funding decisions. If you consent to participate, you will be invited to fill out an anonymous survey (approximately 35 questions) related to your demographic identities, research, and experience applying grants or fellowships, if any.
We are inviting members of several professional organizations to complete the survey: we apologize if you have received this message multiple times and ask that you only fill out the survey once. If you are interested in participating, please click here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/anthfundingsm.
