Scholarships for Anthropology Majors

The study of anthropology has an ambitious goal: to discover what it means to be human. Since that question has no easy answer, anthropologists study cultures, biology, languages and ancient ruins in order to gain more insight. If you’re an anthropology major and you need help paying for your higher education, a scholarship might be the answer for you. A number of the available scholarships are offered by individual universities, such as Colorado State University, University of West Georgia and Northern Arizona University. Others are funded by professional organizations, such as the Archaeological Institute of America, the Firebird Foundation for Anthropological Research and the American Anthropological Association. Students will generally be required to meet a minimum grade point average, and may also need to display financial need, provide examples of their research or write an essay.
