Applications are now being accepted for the 2016-2017 SPA/Lemelson Fellowship program!

The SPA/Lemelson Fellowships are designed to provide graduate students working in the field of psychological anthropology with funding to pursue exploratory research for planning their doctoral dissertation research and methods training to prepare for their research. The dissertations that emerge from the research projects supported by the funding should have the potential of advancing the field of psychological anthropology. Awards between $3,000 and $6,000 can be requested to cover travel, housing and research expenses with some exclusions. Normally, fellows receive their awards after their first or second year of graduate training as they develop their dissertation research projects. Funding may not be used to collect data for master’s theses or doctoral dissertations.

Applicants need not be graduate students in departments of Anthropology, but must be SPA members at the time of application. Fellowships are open to all students without regard to citizenship or residence. Full details on the fellowship program and the application can be found with the application instructions.
