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.

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 must be received by February 1st.  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).
