The department sponsors an annual partial tuition scholarship which is open to anthropology majors and to students transferring from community colleges to major in our department. Anthropology majors are also eligible for Alumni Scholarships, and Mohler Scholarships, and Farrell Merit Awards. The Farrell Merit Scholarship offers undergraduates a unique summer fieldwork program which is designed to encourage interest in anthropology and provide firsthand experience in a research project of the student's own creation.
Majors also are employed in the department as teaching and research assistants and museum docents; and federal and state work-study students are encouraged to apply for jobs in the departmental office.
