"The purpose of anthropology is to make the world safe for human differences." – Ruth Benedict
The Wenner-Gren Foundation has a new online system to accept applications for all of its research grants, conference/workshop grants, and fellowships. We will now accept all materials (e.g., application forms, CVs, project bibliographies) exclusively online; applicants no longer need to mail us printed duplicates.
To get started, please review the Grant Program descriptions on our website and verify that you meet all program and application season pre-requisites. Then follow the instructions on the Access the Online Application page to initiate a submission.
It’s that time of the year again! The 117th annual AAA meeting is about kick off in San Jose, California. Learn more about where you can find Wenner-Gren at the AAA's. Hope to see you there!
