The Beatrice Medicine Travel Award Scholarship celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Beatrice Medicine, an internationally prominent anthropologist. Dr. Medicine was Lakota and an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. This heritage found reflection in her life's work - an impressive record of teaching, research, and service, which focused on understanding and tolerance within the broader human condition and particularly toward Native peoples. Notable among this body of work are Learning to Be an Anthropologist and Remaining Native (University of Illinois Press, 2001) and Drinking and Sobriety Among the Lakota.

The Society for Applied Anthropology is pleased to announce the winners of the Beatrice Medicine Student Travel Awards.
