Anthropology at ISU offers a research award for an anthropology student who wishes to conduct anthropological research. One award for $300 will be awarded each spring semester. The applicant will be a graduate student majoring or minoring in anthropology at Iowa State University who demonstrates a strong interest in anthropological research. The grant is intended to supplement travel and research expenses.
The applicant must submit a 1-page proposal describing their research and its significance, any previous research or relevant course work in Anthropology, and how this award will enhance their research interests and goals. Applications will be reviewed by a faculty review committee. In addition to the cash award, the recipient’s name will be recorded on the Nancy R. Coinman Research Award plaque.
