Financial Aid

Several financial aid opportunities exist for both undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Anthropology.

 The Department awards most fellowships, scholarships, and assistantships after evaluating all students’ records, and their progress toward the degree.  No application process is required for most of these opportunities.

The Marcus Fellowship, however, is awarded once a year to a graduate student who is in the process of writing a thesis on an historical archaeology topic, and requires students to submit an application for consideration by the Department.
The following opportunities are currently available to provide financial assistance for students in the Department of Anthropology.  Please contact the department with any questions.
