Undergraduates attracted to anthropology respond well to even modest recognition and opportunities, yet advisors as well as students are often unaware of the many programs, organizations, honor societies, and granting agencies available to them. This roundtable session explores faculty and student experiences with innovative ways to develop awards, grants, and support for undergraduate anthropologists…as well as presenting practical advice and information on how to prepare students to be competitive for existing awards, such as Lambda Alpha honor society, private and federal scholarships, research and travel grants, field schools, types of awards that universities and agencies offer for undergraduates, and sub-organizations of the AAA in which there is an undergraduate paper or poster prize.
