The Wenner-Gren Foundation is committed to playing a leadership role in anthropology.   We help anthropologists advance anthropological knowledge, build sustainable careers, and amplify the impact of anthropology within the wider world. We dedicate ourselves to broadening the conversation in anthropology to reflect the full diversity of the field.

"The purpose of anthropology is to make the world safe for human differences." – Ruth Benedict

This fellowship aims to expand the anthropological conversation and build capacity in anthropology by amplifying perspectives previously under-represented in the discipline.
