The Society for Applied Anthropology is pleased to announce the results of the Competition for the Student Endowed Award for 2019.  The awardee is Noémie Gonzalez Bautista.  She will receive a travel scholarship of $500 to offset the expenses of attending the 79th Annual Meeting of the Society in Portland, OR, March 19-23, 2019 and a one-year SfAA membership.

Ms. Gonzalez Bautista will present her paper, When Fieldwork Deconstructs the Concept of Vulnerability: Thoughts from a Wildfire in the Nitaskinan on Friday, March 22.  She is currently a Ph.D. student in Anthropology at the Université Laval, Québec.

This prize is the only SfAA award administered entirely by students (specifically the SfAA Student Committee). The student committee works to increase student membership in the SfAA, as well as to encourage and facilitate student participation in the SfAA annual meeting. In 2003, with this mission in mind, members of the Student Committee began to develop the idea of a student award that would cover the costs of student membership and travel to the annual meeting. Over the next two years the student committee took on the task of creating this award, and with the support of very generous donations from the SfAA membership, the committee is proud to present its award in conjunction with the SfAA annual meeting.
