Graduate research involving fieldwork travel often depends on support from grants and fellowships. Some faculty members direct funded team projects involving graduate students, while in other cases, students define their own independent projects and seek individual funding opportunities.
The Anthropology Department collaborates with the Milwaukee Public Museum each spring to support an internship for students enrolled in the Museum Studies Program. The Department also awards two summer research grants competitively to outstanding students in the preliminary stages of doctoral study. We also encourage and mentor our students at all levels in the preparation of applications to extramural awards, fellowships and grants.
