Internships, Fellowships and Programs

The Dean of the college has funds every year for travel to meetings where you are presenting.  Both UG and MA students may apply.  There is a set amount each year distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until the money runs out.  Email to apply for the funds as soon as you have your abstract accepted for your presentation.

SF State has student job postings on Handshake. Please check the Handshake site for the most current opportunities.

Support for student participation in anthropology and other social sciences is awarded to multiple field sites every year by the National Science Foundation.  The selected sites offer stipends (~$3000) to help offset the cost of attendance.  The list of sites include research in New Mexico, Hungary, Ethiopia and at the Smithsonian Institution.
