Wenner-Gren Foundation: Anthropological Research Grants

The Wenner-Gren Foundation is committed to playing a leadership role in anthropology and works to help anthropologists advance anthropological knowledge, build sustainable careers, and amplify the impact of anthropology in the wider world.

To that end, the foundation is inviting applications for its Post-PhD Research Grants program, which will award grants of up to $20,000 in support of research that demonstrates a clear link to anthropological theory and debates, and promises to make a solid contribution to advancing these ideas. There is no preference for any methodology, research location, or subfield. The foundation particularly welcomes proposals that employ a comparative perspective, can generate innovative approaches or ideas, 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 this is part of the research design.
