2015 Halperin Memorial Award Competition Open

Please see the details here about applying for the Halperin pre-doctoral research grant. The deadline is December 15, and winners will receive an award of $2000 for PhD research and $500 to supplement the costs of traveling to the SEA spring conference.

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