Since 2009 the American Association of Physical Anthropologists has been recognizing early career researchers with a small but mighty professional development grant ($5000). I received one of these in 2010 which launched a project for which I otherwise had no funding, leading to one publication and several conference presentations so far. The 2013 competition was announced in the call-for-papers for the Knoxville meeting.
Membership in the AAPA is NOT a requirement. An applicant may receive only one Professional Development Grant during their career. The program is directed toward the career progress of individuals, therefore co-authored/multi-authored applications will not be considered. Completed applications must be received on or before January 15, 2013 (This person's birthday!).
