Research and Travel Funding

Image Picker for Section 0

Research provides an opportunity for undergraduate anthropology students to enhance the learning obtained in their classroom coursework.  Application of required skills allows development of a deeper appreciation of the discipline and clarification of career goals.  And the satisfaction of completing a research project creates confidence in a student's ability to perform in the chosen field of study.

The Department of Anthropology offer students an opportunity to receive financial support from two awards, the Monica and Brand Fortner Endowment  and the Peter M. Weil Travel Award established for the purpose of supporting undergraduate research.
