Undergraduate Awards & Scholarship Opportunities

 

We invite applications from University of Michigan undergraduates in good academic standing to apply for funds to participate in a field or research opportunity related to anthropological archaeology. Priority will be given to Anthropology majors/minors who have not previously received Museum of Anthropological Archaeology awards or scholarships. Applications are typically accepted January - February for decisions in early April. More information for the next awards and scholarship season will be available in January 2018.

The application process requires:

  • an online application
  • a project description and budget
  • ONE faculty member or GSI to fill out and submit the recommendation form
  • an unofficial copy of your UM transcript

Your application materials as Word or PDF documents should be submitted to the Undergraduate Awards Coordinator at ummaa-undergrad-awards@umich.edu.

Complete instructions, forms and link to the online application are available here

The 2017 UMMAA Undergraduate Award recipients are Daniel Hansen (destination: Odense, Denmark), Nolan Powers (destination: Chincha Valley of Peru) and Kristin Cimmerer (destination: Sehonghon, Lesotho South Africa). Check back in October to read the details of their summer fieldwork experiences!
