Awards and Scholarships

Thanks to generous donors, the Department of Anthropology has two endowed funds to support grants and scholarships.

Antoinette C. Bigel Scholarship Fund

The Antoinette C. Bigel Scholarship Fund was established in September, 1996, to support undergraduate and graduate students in anthropology to participate in supervised field work in anthropology. The funds available annually are determined by the interest earned on the principal in the Antoinette C. Bigel Endowment Fund.
