Dr. Robert Ritzenthaler Memorial Museum Studies Scholarships

The Department of Anthropology periodically awards scholarships to Anthropology graduate students who will be in their second year of the Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program. The scholarships are intended to partially support students’ research (e.g., travel expenses, supplies/equipment, conference fees).

Students are considered typically in spring each year between March and May. Awards given in spring are for the following school year so students graduating that same spring or summer are not eligible. E.G. applications reviewed in Spring 2022 are for Fall 2022; students graduating in May or August 2022 are not eligible.
