Institutional Development Grant from the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, Inc.

The Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research established the Institutional Development Grant (IDG) program in 2008. The IDG is intended to strengthen (or to support the development of) anthropological doctoral programs in countries where the discipline is underrepresented. The grant provides $25,000 per year, is renewable for a maximum of five years (total support of $125,000), and may be used for any purpose to achieve the academic development goals of the applicant department. A minimum of one new award will be made each year and priority will be given to those applicant departments which have arranged strong partnership arrangements with other anthropological institutions that can help them achieve their development goals.

Since the program’s inauguration, five institutions have received IDG grants located in Nepal, Mongolia, Argentina, The Philippines and Vietnam.  All departments have created an innovative five-year plan developing initiatives in staff, student, and program development, among other things. Details of the these Institutional Development Grants can be found in the Grantees section of the Wenner-Gren website as well as in the Foundation’s annual reports at: www.wennergren.org/grantees

The grant has a two-stage application process; a preliminary inquiry followed by a full application. The deadline for the mandatory preliminary inquiry is May 15, 2012 and this must be submitted on the preliminary inquiry form which can be downloaded from the website. The deadline for those applicants invited to submit a full application is September 15, 2011. Awards will be announced in November 2012 for programs beginning in January 2013. Full information about the program can also be found on the Foundation’s website. Further inquiries about the program can be directed to development(at)wennergren.org.
