GRAD Grants

The SJSU Department of Anthropology supports graduate projects, research and presentations. Awards fall under three categories:

1. Seed Grants (maximum award: $250). These grants are awarded to graduate students seeking support for an exploratory project that is in its early stages and may require travel to a research site, purchase of books or materials, ect. 

2. Research and Development Grants (maximum award: $500). These grants are awarded to graduate students seeking support for a project (including work on a faculty-led project) that will form the basis of an M.A. project report or thesis. 

3. Travel Grants (maximum award: $750). These grants are awarded to graduate students seeking support for travel to an academic conference for the purpose of presenting a professional paper. Grant applicants must provide evidence that a paper has been accepted by the professional organization. 

Applications are accepted on a continuous basis (throughout the academic year). Students should consult with a faculty sponsor before preparing a request.
