The foundation is inviting applications for its Post-PhD Research Grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded in support of research that demonstrates a clear link to anthropological theory and debate and promises to make a solid contribution to advancing the field. The foundation has no preference for methodology, research location, or subfield and welcomes proposals that employ a comparative perspective, can generate an innovative approach or idea, and/or integrate two or more subfields.
Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent degree and may apply regardless of institutional affiliation, country of residence, or nationality. There is no time limit on the duration of the grant and funding may be requested to cover distinct research phases (for example, two summers) if it is part of the research design.
See the Wenner-Gren Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
