Fellowship: Collaborative Research Grants

Deadline: August 1, 2016

Sponsor: American Academy of Religion (AAR)
Amount: $500-$5,000

To fulfill its commitment to advance research in religion, the AAR each year grants awards ranging from $500 to $5,000 to support projects proposed by AAR members and selected by the AAR Research Grants Review Committee. Collaborative grants are intended to stimulate cooperative research among scholars who have a focus on a clearly identified research project. They may also be used for interdisciplinary work with scholars outside the field of religion, especially when such work shows promise of continuing beyond the year funded. Collaborative project proposals are expected to describe plans for having the results of the research published. Grants can provide funds for networking and communication. Funds may also be used to support small research conferences. Conference proposals will be considered only if they are designed primarily to advance research. Conferences presenting papers that report on previous research will not be considered.

Fellowship: Engaged Anthropology Grant

Deadline: August 1, 2016

Sponsor: Wenner-Gren Foundation
Amount: $5,000

A Wenner-Gren grantee may apply for the Engaged Anthropology Grant upon completion of the final reporting requirements for the Dissertation Fieldwork or Post-Ph.D. Research Grant. This grant is designed to enable grantees to return to their research locale to share their research results with: 1) The community  in which the research was conducted; and/or 2) The academic/anthropological community in the region or country of research. The Foundation realizes that the appropriate form of engagement will vary depending on the type of project that was undertaken and the location of the research. Emphasis should be on disseminating the research results of Wenner-Gren funded research. Applications are evaluated according to the project’s capacity for producing engaged participation, cultivating mutually beneficial collaborations, and forging equitable relationships among all parties involved. This grant does not support the continuation of research activities, the establishment of websites, or other forms of engagement with western anthropologists who typically have access to the international academic community and literature.
