Anthropologists Awarded Nearly $3 Million in NEH Grants

In its 50th anniversary year, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has announced $79 million in grants for 290 humanities projects and programs across the United States. The grants will support a wide range of efforts in the humanities, and include nearly $3 million in support of anthropological programs and pursuits. 

This year, the NEH offered a new grant program titled Next Generation PhD. These grants support a transformation of how PhD candidates in the humanities study for their degrees and are prepared for a broader range of careers at the conclusion of their often years-long, intensely academic graduate school experiences. Among the Next Generation PhD grantees is AAA member Sarah Lyon at the University of Kentucky for her project "Careers Beyond the Academy," which aims to develop graduate programming that prepares students for multiple career outcomes. 

Other recipients in anthropology include seven of AAA's Department Services Program members:

As well as a number of other institutions and individuals:

 Congratulations to all of this year's recipients.
