2020 Halperin Award Call for Entries

The Rhoda Halperin Memorial Fund celebrates the life and work of Rhoda Halperin by supporting PhD students in anthropology who emulate her commitment to economic anthropology and concern for people on the social margins. In memory of Rhoda’s convivial collegiality, the Fund also encourages student professional development through participation in the scholarly meetings of the SEA and AAA. To meet these goals, this award provides students engaged in economic research focused on social exclusion and poverty with small grants for preliminary dissertation fieldwork, and subsequent travel money to present their findings at the Society for Economic Anthropology annual conference.

To learn more about eligibility, award details, and how to apply, see the Halperin Award page.
