AAA Community Engagement Grants

From the AAA CFP for Community Engagement Grants:

"AAA Community Engagement Grants (CE Grants) provide up to $2,000 for AAA
Sections to rent offsite space for events that engage communities and
extend Anthropology's reach beyond the annual meeting. There are no
restrictions on the kinds of events that may be proposed, but the funds
must be used only for rental of space, and the event must be open to all
AAA meeting attendees."

CE Grant proposals should include the following information: the title of
the proposed event, a description of the event, the location of that event,
the community partners who will be involved in/help to coordinate the
event, the names and pertinent for contact persons at the event site, the
names and contact information for the AAA/SMA organizer(s), and the amount
of funds requested for the rental of community space. Prospective event
organizer(s) are encouraged to include a rationale for the importance of
the proposed activity, as part of their event description.

Please send CE Grant proposals to the SMA Program Chair and Co-Chair: Mary
Anglin (<>) and Athena McLean (<>) no later than March 28, 2016.

The Program Committee Co-Chairs will review the applications and convey our
recommendations to the SMA President, Elisa Sobo, in advance of the AAA
deadline for Sections to submit a proposal: April 1, 2016. Applicants will
be notified about the status of their proposals by the AAA deadline.

Any questions about the AAA Community Engagement Grants should be directed
to Miguel Diaz Barriga, AAA Section Convenor (
or Kim Baker (<>)
