Sol Tax Scholarship

The Department of Anthropology will be awarding the Sol Tax Scholarship to multiple Anthropology PhD students to support their dissertation research. Any doctoral student may apply for the scholarship, although special consideration will be given to students who have additional research expenses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Awards will be up to $1,000 each (the number and size of awards will depend on the number of applications received) and paid during the Fall 2020 semester.
