Anthropology Micro Grants

The anthropology department offers micro grants (up to $200) to support undergraduate student initiatives. The grants support projects that may include, but are not limited to

  • research related to a thesis, to class assignments, or to projects undertaken independently
  • community-building in the form of events (such as an anthropology-related film screening) or the sharing of one's class projects on a broader stage, such as the department's social media
  • career development (such as attendance at a conference)
  • and anything else you can think of!

Read summaries of the work of micro grant recipients.

Priority will be given to anthropology majors and minors, although students from any major/minor may apply as long as you have passed at least one anthropology course.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. You can expect a response within two weeks. Each grant carries a maximum award of $200, and students may receive only one grant per year. Grants are made on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funding is still available.
