Grant Preparation Information and Tools
The department has developed a library of information about grants both online and in hard-copy references available in the Anthropology Department Office. Some of this information is specific to Case Western Reserve University and can be used as an internal reference tool for preparing a grant. In addition, staff are available to assist with preparation and submission.
Below, in the A-Z Grant List, you will find links to over 50 organizations who offer grants, scholarships, and/or fellowships that apply either directly or indirectly to anthropology and its related disciplines. The links below the A-Z Grant List divide our full grant listing into smaller groups based on the specified criteria.
