The Emeritus Professors’ Student Research Fund
In 2011, Doug Caulkins became an emeritus professor of the College. In recognition of Doug’s extensive teaching and service to the department as well as his unending support of students, the department of Anthropology has established “The Emeritus Professors’ Student Research Fund”. These competitive funds are intended to expand current student research opportunities when normal college funds are not available. The funds may be used for research or expenses related to travel to disseminate results of research (such as conference attendance).
Eligibility and Application Process: All returning anthropology majors are eligible to apply for funds, pending availability. Students should consult with a member of the department before submission of their proposal regarding the nature of the project and requests for funds. After this consultation, applicants should submit a one page description of their project as well as a detailed budget to Sondi Burnell [burnell]. When applicable, copies of receipts and/or letter of acceptance to a conference should be submitted to receive funds.
Deadlines: Applications will be reviewed by the department three times a year. A sum of up to $1000 dollars will be available for summer research or travel. Awards up to $500 dollars will be disbursed at the beginning of each semester for travel and research incurred that semester.
Summer Research Funds: 2nd Friday of May
