Mellon Emerging Faculty Leaders Award
The Leaders Award of the Mellon Emerging Faculty supports tenure-track faculty who have passed their midpoint check. The award is designed to free up the time of junior faculty who have passed their midpoint tenure examination, including those from underrepresented groups and those who are dedicated to eradicating inequalities in their fields so that they can both participate and create support structures, networks, and affinity groups that make their fields and campuses more inclusive. Eligible candidates must have had their third-year examination or the equivalent of their institution passed.
Dissertation Fellowship for Historically Underrepresented Persons in Anthropology
The American Anthropological Association invites minority doctoral candidates in anthropology to apply for a dissertation writing fellowship of $10,000. The annual Dissertation Fellowship for Historically Underrepresented Persons in Anthropology (formerly the Minority Dissertation Award) is intended to encourage members of racialized minorities to complete doctoral degrees in anthropology, thereby increasing diversity in the discipline and/or promoting research on issues of concern among minority populations. Dissertation topics in all areas of the discipline are welcome. Doctoral students who require financial assistance to complete the write-up phase of the dissertation are urged to apply.
