Society Announces 2020 Student Endowed Award 

bochniakThe Society for Applied Anthropology is pleased to announce the results of the Competition for the Student Endowed Award for 2020.  The awardee is Victoria Bochniak.  She will receive a travel scholarship of $500 to offset the expenses of attending the 80th Annual Meeting of the Society in Albuquerque, NM, March 17-21, 2020 and a one-year SfAA membership.

Ms. Bochniak will present her roundtable, Intimate Epistemologies: Making and Remaking Knowledge in Graduate School on Friday, March 20.  She is currently a Ph.D. student in Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

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.

Please contact the SfAA Office for additional information.  A more detailed biography of each of the awardees is featured on the SfAA web page.
