NAPA Student Achievement Awards

Deadline: September 15, 2022 

Hi Anthro Folks!

The National Association for the Practice of Anthropology (NAPA) offers the annual Student Achievement Awards to recognize undergraduate and graduate student contributions in the area of practicing and applied anthropology. The awards recognize students within and outside the United States who have excelled in the field and provides opportunities for those who have conducted original research/projects in any applied context to be recognized during the American Anthropological Association (AAA) annual meetings and have their work considered for publication in the Annals of Anthropological Practice. 

Please note that NAPA recognizes the significant impacts and disruptions caused by COVID-19 in terms of social distancing and traveling. There is no expectation for you to attend the AAA annual meetings in-person, and all prospective applicants are welcomed and encouraged to submit their work with this in mind. 

The deadline for submission is September 15, 2022. Winners will be notified in early-to-mid October.

Please share this opportunity with your students, networks and anyone you know who might be interested!
