Wenner-Gren Foundation New Institutional Development Grant (IDG)

The Wenner-Gren Foundation is pleased to launch a new funding program,
the Institutional Development Grant (IDG). The IDG is intended to
strengthen (or to support the development of) anthropological doctoral
programs in countries where the discipline is underrepresented. The
grant provides $25,000 per year, is renewable for a maximum of five
years (total support of $125,000), and may be used for any purpose to
achieve the academic development goals of the applicant department. One
new award will be made each year and priority will be given to those
applicant departments that have partnership arrangements with other
anthropological institutions that can help them achieve their
development goals.

The Institutional Development Grant has a two-stage application
 process; a preliminary inquiry followed by a full application. The deadline 
for the mandatory preliminary inquiry is February 1, 2008. If the
preliminary inquiry is successful, the deadline for submission of the
full application is April 1, 2008. The first award will be made in
September 2008.
