Gifts can be given for general use or designated for one of the following awards:
Juan A. Villamarin Award for Opportunity and Excellence
This memorial award provides recognition for excellence and financial aid for students from underrepresented groups.
Juan A. Villamarin, Professor, and for many years Chair of the Department of Anthropology, chose to work with students who were underrepresented in undergraduate education. He formed close relationships with generations of students who called him "Papa Juan." He had deep empathy for students, especially those who were new to the academic environment, and he worked diligently to help them succeed at the University of Delaware.
Peter M. Weil Travel Award
This fund was established to support undergraduate students' travel for independent anthropological research across the United States and around the world.
Peter M. Weil, Professor Emeritus, was instrumental in establishing the Department of Anthropology at the University of Delaware. While teaching at UD, he mentored undergraduate students on research training projects, senior theses, and independent study projects.
