Student Scholarships 2017: The Flanders, Koch, and the new Quimby scholarship forms are now available online. All full-time students can apply for the three. Part-time students can apply for the Koch scholarship only. These scholarships are based on several selection criteria, including grades, interests and activities related to anthropology, and financial need. In addition to all full-time students, the new Quimby scholarship encourages Native American students to apply. Typically, each year a dozen or so students benefit from these scholarships. You could be one of these.
The applications are due March 17, 2017. You will need to fill out the application form, and have a faculty member fill out a brief recommendation form. These, and your transcripts, are sent to the Financial Aid Office. Be sure to speak to your faculty adviser about the recommendation at least one week ahead of the March 17 deadline.

This student-run organization works with Lambda Alpha Honor Society sponsoring speakers, fund-raising events, and participate in local, regional, and national meetings of Anthropology. The Club is also involved in local and international community service projects.
