Past applicants have studied in disciplines that included: anthropology, chemistry, environment, ecology, evolutionary biology, history, international studies, medical anthropology, neuroscience, political science, and public policy.

Grants of up to $2,000 to will be awarded to a limited number of students. Funding can be used by the student to pay travel and living expenses. These funds are primarily intended for students working unpaid, but if students are being paid, it is possible to receive funding to offset expenses not covered by the host organization.
