Nancy "Penny" Schwartz Undergraduate Student Essay Award

Association for Africanist Anthropology (AfAA)

Application Information


Scholarship Overview

This award is for undergraduate students. To apply for this award, applicants must submit a paper in Africanist anthropology. The award is given based on originality of scholarship, creativity of insight, and quality of writing; a well-argued and innovative perspective on a current issue of concern to Africanist and African diaspora scholarship or to the issues facing Africa more generally; clear potential for supporting future research at the graduate level or beyond. Special consideration will be given to undergraduates planning to pursue a career in anthropology or in service and education on the African continent; and original research involving primary materials or fieldwork is useful, but not essential for consideration.
