Awards & Scholarships

Through its awards and scholarships program, the Alaska Anthropological Association seeks to recognize outstanding work by its members, to support professional development, and to encourage the academic excellence of students. We are happy to add a travel grant to the awards and scholarships program for 2018.

Each fall the Association issues a call to its membership for award nominations, student scholarship applications, and entries in the Edwin S. Hall student paper competition.  Submissions and supporting materials are due February 1st for all competitions with the exception of the Travel Grant and Hall Paper, which are due January 15th.  The Travel Grant and Hall Paper have earlier deadlines as awards may influence attendance at the conference in March.  The Awards, Scholarship, and Student Paper Committees review applications and make recommendations for approval by the Association’s Board.  It is not required that any award, scholarship, or prize be given every year.  Recipients are announced at the awards banquet and business meeting at the Association’s Annual Meeting in the spring.  All awardees must be members in good standing; they will be given advance notice of their awards and receive free tickets to the banquet.

Information on individual programs, including downloadable nomination and application forms, are available from this web page (see menu to left).  Questions, completed applications, and supporting materials may be submitted by email (alaskaanthroaward.scholarship [at] gmail [dot] com­)
