The St. Clair Drake Student Travel Grant Award
The Society for the Anthropology of North America announces the St. Clair Drake Student Travel Grant for travel to the 2012 AAA conference, titled "Borders and Crossings" on November 14-18 in San Francisco, California.
The committee will distribute up to four grants of $500 each.
To apply, submit your paper abstract, university affiliation, and contact information to email@example.com by September 30, 2012. No additional materials are needed.
Applicants must be SANA members. The membership fee is only $10 for students – please see http://sananet.org/about.php for instructions on how to join.
- The student travel grant is awarded on a competitive basis and reviewed by a committee comprised of members from the SANA board. This travel grant is intended for currently enrolled graduate students without a PhD. Only students who are presenting papers at the conference will be considered for the grant.
- Papers should relate to the study of North America and – in keeping with the work of the grant’s namesake, St. Clair Drake – preferably consider the politics of everyday life in North America such as those pertaining to race, ethnicity, class, gender, and/or sexuality. Priority will be given to those that address Mexico, the United States, and Canada.
- Preference will go to those students who have previously applied for the SANA travel grant and have not yet received one.
- The total dollar amount allocated to travel grants is limited; therefore, the number and dollar amount of grants awarded depends on the number of applicants and their travel needs.
- Travel grants will not be awarded to any individual two years in a row.
- SANA is an intentionally inclusive community of anthropologists and encourages every student to apply for the St. Clair Drake grant regardless of society’s labels or anthropology’s disciplinary boundaries. However, applicants must be SANA members presenting at the 2012 AAA meeting.
