AAA 2005: The St. Claire Drake Student Travel Grant Award
The Society for the Anthropology of North America announces
the St. Claire Drake Student Travel Grants Award
for the 2005 AAA Meetings in Washington, D.C. (November 30-December 4)
To apply, submit your paper abstract, university affiliation, and contact
information to sanatravelgrant at yahoo.com by October 21, 2005. The student
travel grant will be awarded on a competitive basis and reviewed by a
committee comprised of members from the SANA board.
. This travel grant is intended for currently enrolled graduate students
without a PhD. Only students who are presenting at the conference will be
considered for the award.
. Papers should relate to the study of North America and-in keeping with the
work of the award's namesake, St. Claire Drake-preferably address social
justice issues such as those pertaining to "race," ethnicity, class, gender,
sexuality, etc. Priority will be given to those that address Mexico, the
United States, and Canada.
. Preference will go to those students who have previously applied for the
SANA travel grant and have not yet received one.
. The total dollar amount allocated to travel grants is limited; therefore,
the number and dollar amount of grants awarded depends on the number of
applicants and their travel needs.
. Travel grants will not be awarded to any individual two years in a row.
. Drake fellows may be asked to assist SANA by helping pass out
informational flyers at sessions or contributing to its newsletter.
. SANA is an intentionally inclusive community of anthropologists and
encourages every student to apply for the St. Claire Drake award regardless
of society's labels or anthropology's disciplinary boundaries. Although it
is not necessary for applicants to be members of SANA, recipients of the
award are expected to join SANA.
