Apply Now! Wenner-Gren Fellowship in Anthropology and Black Experiences

The deadline for applications is November 6, 2023, for a fellowship starting in September 1, 2024.

The purpose of the Wenner-Gren Fellowship in Anthropology and Black Experiences is to expand the anthropological conversation and build capacity in anthropology as a career and field of study, amplifying perspectives previously underrepresented in the discipline.

The School for Advanced Research (SAR), in Santa Fe, New Mexico, administers this award in collaboration with the Wenner-Gren Foundation. SAR is eager to support individuals whose research draws on Black studies, critical race studies, diasporic Africana studies, the vernacular insights of communities of color, and other sources of inspiration growing out of global Black experiences, to advance new lines of scholarship in any of anthropology’s subfields. SAR hopes to attract applicants working in diverse areas, including but not limited to Black communities.

Fellows receive a stipend of $50,000. Resident scholars also receive low-cost housing and free office space at the SAR campus. Fellows who opt not to relocate receive a travel subsidy covering the cost of short-term in-person residency at the SAR campus.
