Wenner-Gren Institutional Development Grant -- call for applications Dear All, Please circulate the following announcement to your members as appropriate. It is an excellent opportunity to develop anthropological doctoral programs in countries where the discipline is underrepresented. Institutional Development Grant from the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, Inc. The Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research established the Institutional Development Grant (IDG) program in 2008. The IDG is intended to strengthen (or to support the development of) anthropological doctoral programs in countries where the discipline is underrepresented. The grant provides $25,000 per year, is renewable for a maximum of five years (total support of $125,000), and may be used for any purpose to achieve the academic development goals of the applicant department. A minimum of one new award will be made each year and priority will be given to those applicant departments which have arranged strong partnership arrangements with other anthropological institutions that can help them achieve their development goals. Since the program’s inauguration, five institutions have received IDG grants located in Nepal, Mongolia, Argentina, The Philippines and Vietnam. All departments have created an innovative five year plan developing initiatives in staff, student, and program development, among other things. Details of the these Institutional Development Grants can be found in the Grantees section of the Wenner-Gren website as well as in the Foundation’s annual reports at: www.wennergren.org/grantees The Institutional Development Grant has a two-stage application process; a preliminary inquiry followed by a full application.
