AAA Committee on Minority Issues in Anthropology, chaired by Simon Craddock Lee, encourages applications to the AAA Minority Dissertation Fellowship, due February 15th 2011. The annual AAA Minority Dissertation Fellowship is intended to encourage members of ethnic minorities to complete doctoral degrees in anthropology, thereby increasing diversity in the discipline and/or promoting research on issues of concern among minority populations. Dissertation topics in all areas of the discipline are welcome. Doctoral students who require financial assistance to complete the write-up phase of the dissertation are urged to apply.
