THE CARRIE HUNTER-TATE AWARD
The Carrie Hunter-Tate Award honors the memory of a former officer of the National Association of Student Anthropologists (NASA). Carrie energetically devoted her time and talents to NASA until her untimely death in 1995. To honor the spirit with which she dedicated herself to the profession of anthropology, NASA has established the Carrie Hunter-Tate Award, to be bestowed upon student anthropologists with similar enthusiasm for service to the profession. The judgment criteria for this award are split equally between academic and professional achievements. Examples of academic achievements include – but are not limited to – class performance, receipt of academic scholarships and awards, publications and presentations, and, scholarly research. Examples of professional achievement include – but are not limited to – service within professional organizations or departments, leadership positions within student anthropological groups and community service in which anthropological issues are brought to the public’s attention.
All members of the National Association of Student Anthropologists (excluding currently elected or appointed NASA Officers) who have demonstrated excellence in academic and service-oriented anthropology are eligible for the Tate Award. Undergraduates, graduates, and all international students are encouraged to apply for these awards. This year, the NASA Awards Selection Committee will give two awards: one to a graduate student ($250) and one to an undergraduate student ($250). The winners of the Tate Award will each receive a check to be presented at the NASA Business Meeting at the American Anthropological Association Annual Meeting in November.
