The UD anthropology department provides undergraduate students with funding for research and travel activities. In 2022, Amber Schlichtig received funds to participate in the Blackfriary Archaeology Field School in Ireland.

Weil Travel Award. These funds help students conduct fieldwork, lab and archival research, art and writing projects, internships, and myriad other activities related to anthropology.
