Must researchers be together in the field?

Normally, we expect the applicant and co-applicant(s) to work together at the research site, but other patterns of collaboration can be considered and should be addressed in the preliminary inquiry.

Must all applicants have a Ph.D to apply for an International Collaborative Research Grant?

Usually yes. But in some cases "equivalent experience" can substitute for the doctorate, and applicants must make the case for this exception in their application.

Do both ICRG applicants have to be anthropologists?

No. As long as the research questions are anthropological, the program encourages collaborations with related disciplines where the project goals require it.

Is my Grant or Fellowship taxable?

Below is information on US tax issues and the Foundation's tax reporting requirements.  Please note that Wenner-Gren Foundation grants and fellowships are "non-service" payments and do not represent compensation for past, present, or future services.
