Applications are closed for the 2017-2018 SPA/RLF Fellowship program!

The SPA/Robert Lemelson Foundation 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 /or methods training to prepare for their doctoral dissertation research. Research projects supported by the funding should have the potential of advancing the field of psychological anthropology. Normally, fellows receive their awards after their first or second year of graduate training as they begin to develop their dissertation research projects. We expect to award six or
more fellowships (depending upon funding levels) in 2017 with each fellow expected to receive between $3,000 and $6,000 depending upon need.

Applicants must be enrolled in a graduate program at the time of application and during the period of the fellowship. Applicants’ proposed research must be in the field of psychological anthropology, broadly defined, but they do not need to be students in departments of anthropology. 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.
