UMMAA Undergraduate Awards & Scholarship Opportunities

APPLICATIONS FOR 2020 UMMAA UNDERGRADUATE AWARDS WILL OPEN EARLY JANUARY, 2020

We invite you to return in early January, 2020 when U-M undergraduates in good academic standing can apply for funding of up to $2,000 through the Museum of Anthropological Archaeology 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. 

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 will be posted here in early Jan 2020.
