Read about the Foundation's new Institutional Development Grant
The Wenner-Gren Foundation is pleased to launch a new funding program, the Institutional Development Grant (IDG). The IDG is intended to strengthen (or to support the development of) anthropological doctoral programs in countries where the discipline is underrepresented. The grant provides $25,000 per year, is renewable for a maximum of five years (total support of $125,000), and may be used for any purpose to achieve the academic development goals of the applicant department. One new award will be made each year and priority will be given to those applicant departments that have partnership arrangements with other anthropological institutions that can help them achieve their development goals.
The Institutional Development Grant has a two-stage application process; a preliminary inquiry followed by a full application. The deadline for the mandatory preliminary inquiry is February 1, 2008. If the preliminary inquiry is successful, the deadline for submission of the full application is April 1, 2008. The first award will be made in September 2008.
