Other UAF and Alaska funding sources

Many of our students have also been supported through the UAF IGERT PhD Programs: Resilience and Adaptation (RAP) and Marine Ecosystem Sustainability in the Arctic and Subarctic (MESAS). Students are admitted to the IGERT program but may declare anthropology as their home department. Students interested in one of these programs with an anthropology focus should contact a member of the anthropology faculty to discuss their options.

An excllent multi-year external source of funding open to all early career graduate students is the NSF Graduate Student Fellowship program (NSFGRFP).

Major sources of funding for graduate student research are: NSF (Dissertation Improvement Grants),Social Sciences Research Council,  Wenner Gren and the Leaky Foundation.

Other sources of funding for travel, graduate education, and thesis/dissertation research can be found at the Graduate SchoolAlaska EPSCoR and the Office of Sponsored Programs.
