Selection Criteria

All eligible applications undergo the Foundation’s peer-review process. Applicants who advance to the final round of review sometimes participate in interviews with Foundation staff and SAPIENS staff. Reviewers will look for:

  1. applicant’s academic and extra-academic accomplishments;
  2. a demonstrated relationship between the applicant’s past experience and the fellowship’s goals, as well as overall fit for the position; and
  3. a demonstrated commitment to pursuing a career in public anthropology.

Applicants must submit their applications using the Foundation's online application submission procedure. The materials for the next application period will be uploaded to this webpage in March 2021.
