From the Wenner-Gren Foundation:
We are proud to announce the creation of a new grant program designed to support and celebrate research partnerships that blend the skills and knowledge of anthropologists and activists and community leaders from minoritized and marginalized groups.
The events of 2020 have forced anthropologists to reckon with their discipline’s history and the nature of the relationships they forge through their research. They are finding themselves asking themselves hard questions about the ethical implications of the work they do. The best way to advance knowledge in anthropology is to draw on new sources of insight.
The best way to ensure anthropological research has an impact is to make sure projects are meaningful for everyone involved. By supporting projects that are collaborative from the get-go, Wenner-Gren hopes to demonstrate the value of this new approach to research for the field.
The deadline for applications is August 1, 2021. The online application will be made available two months before the August 1 deadline.
