What is the Stapleton Award?

The Stapleton Award is a funding opportunity that encourages students to explore anthropology outside of the classroom. These explorations can take many forms, such as internships and independent research. More information about the Stapleton Award can be found on our Stapleton webpage.

Are there multiple awards available?

Yes! We tend to have enough funds for 3-4 awards per year depending on the length of the project.

$2500 and $5000. If a project is one semester long (this includes summer term), then the award is $2500, but if the project takes place over two semesters or the entire academic year then the amount increases to $5000.
