Support Anthropology

Image Picker for Section 0

‚ÄčAlyssa Serra (class of 2009)

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Department of Anthropology at the University of Delaware. Your gifts provide extra support for faculty and student research and help us to create opportunities for student activities and faculty/student interactions that foster our community of anthropologists.

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 seeks to provide recognition for excellence as well as financial aid for students from disadvantaged groups.         

    Juan A. Villamarin, Professor, and for many years Chair of the Department of Anthropology, chose to work with students who were under-represented in undergraduate education and needed his help. 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. 

Peter M. Weil Travel Award

    This fund was established to support undergraduate students' travel to engage in independent anthropological research across the country and around the world.

     Peter M. Weil, Professor Emeritus, was instrumental in establishing  the Department of Anthropology and its foundational curriculum. While teaching at UD, Professor Weil mentored undergraduate students  on research training projects, senior theses and study projects.
