Funding Opportunity: Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants – Cultural Anthropology Program (NSF)

Deadline for Applications: November 30, 2016

Title: Cultural Anthropology Program – Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (CA-DDRIG) (NSF 15-556)
Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)
Amount: $20,000 (direct costs)

Description: The primary objective of the Cultural Anthropology Program is to support basic scientific research on the causes, consequences, and complexities of human social and cultural variability. Anthropological research spans a wide gamut, and contemporary cultural anthropology is an arena in which diverse research traditions and methodologies are valid. Recognizing the breadth of the field’s contributions to science, the Cultural Anthropology Program welcomes proposals for empirically grounded, theoretically engaged, and methodologically sophisticated research in all sub-fields of cultural anthropology. Because the National Science Foundation’s mandate is to support basic research, the NSF Cultural Anthropology Program does not fund research that takes as its primary goal improved clinical practice or applied policy.

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Vanessa Lopez ( in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return the Proposal Review Form by November 30.
