May I apply for more than one grant per deadline, or can I hold two grants at the same time?

Occasionally, an applicant may have a Conference application and another program application pending at the same time. You cannot apply for two grants at the same time (such as a Hunt Fellowship and a Post-Ph.D. grant), nor have two formal applications pending at the same time. Normally, you must have completed any previous grant awarded to you by the Foundation before submitting a new application.

I want to study anthropology; can Wenner-Gren help?

The Foundation provides no scholarship or tuition support for students unless you are resident in a country where anthropology is underrepresented and want to study at an institution that can provide international-level training in anthropology. If this is the case you may be eligible to apply for the Wadsworth International Fellowship or the Wadsworth African Fellowship. The Foundation does not support any studies at the masters or undergraduate level.

My project does not fit into Wenner-Gren's programs. Will you consider funding it?

The Foundation's priority is the development of anthropology and its contribution to the social sciences and academic knowledge. The Foundation does not encourage unsolicited proposals for funding. However, the president may consider special requests for funding but only very rarely, when the proposal could make a significant contribution to the discipline and is in-line with the Foundation's mission.

What is the Wenner-Gren Foundation?

The Wenner-Gren Foundation seeks to further the discipline of anthropology through its different grant making programs and other activities. Programs are designed to support basic, innovative research in all branches of anthropology worldwide and to further the communication of research ideas and results internationally through our conferences, publications, and other activities.
