Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research – Dissertation Fieldwork Grants

Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research – Dissertation Fieldwork Grants

Deadline: May 1 and November 1

The Wenner-Gren Foundation supports students enrolled in doctoral programs leading to a Ph.D. (or equivalent), including grants for dissertation research. Dissertation Fieldwork Grants for up to $20,000 are awarded to individuals enrolled in a doctoral program to support dissertation research. Applicants must be engaged in research that contributes to anthropological knowledge. Applicants of any nationality or country of residence may apply.

Aims: The program contributes to the Foundation”s overall mission to support basic research in anthropology and to ensure that the discipline continues to be a source of vibrant and significant work that furthers our understanding of humanity’s cultural and biological origins, development, and variation.
Description: The Foundation supports research that demonstrates a clear link to anthropological theory and debates, and promises to make a solid contribution to advancing these ideas. There is no preference for any methodology, research location, or subfield. The Foundation particularly welcomes proposals that employ a comparative perspective, can generate innovative approaches or ideas, and/or integrate two or more subfields. There is no time limit on the duration of the grant, and funding may be requested to cover distinct research phases (for example, two summers) if this is part of the research design.
