Student Opportunity - Economic Anthropology - Rhoda Halperin Memorial Fund - deadline December 15th

Rhoda Halperin Memorial Fund

The Rhoda Halperin Memorial Fund
celebrates the life and scholarly work of
Rhoda Halperin by supporting PhD
students in anthropology who emulate her
love of economic anthropology and her
concern for people living on the social
margin. In memory of Rhoda?s convivial colleagueship, the Fund
also encourages student professional development through
participation in the scholarly meetings of the SEA and AAA. To
meet these goals, students engaged in economic research focused on
social exclusion and poverty are provided small research grants and
subsequent travel money to present their findings at the Society for
Economic Anthropology annual conference.

- The primary task of the Fund is to support PhD students with
innovative approaches to research and a desire to engage the world
through their scholarship, and who need seed money for their
dissertation research.
-Because Rhoda Halperin?s career exemplified the integration of
anthropological theory with social activism, for the purposes of this
award, Economic Anthropology is broadly defined to include both
applied and non-applied issues, including social research that
engages with issues of poverty, exclusion from the political process,
and access to education.
- The Halperin Fund enables pre-doctoral travel and support for
dissertation research to help students develop their topics and
-Recipients receive a primary grant of $1000 for doctoral research.
-Recipients receive a second award of $500 to supplement the costs
of traveling to the Society for Economic Anthropology spring
conference during the year following the research award in order to
give a poster session or paper reporting on the dissertation research
or background.

Students who meet the eligibility requirements may apply by
December 15, 2013. For further info:
