Dear Colleagues & Friends: I am writing to you in your capacities as officers of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists to appeal for your support. You may have heard by now that deep cuts in the funding for science at The Field Museum have been publicly announced.
The anatomical sciences and biological anthropology have a deeply entwined history, and new methodological and theoretical advances in both fields ensure an exciting future. To recognize and encourage the incorporation of the anatomical sciences into cutting edge biological anthropology research, the American Association of Anatomists and the American Association of Physical Anthropologists are jointly providing funding for ONE student award to be presented at the 82nd Annual Meeting of the AAPA in Knoxville, TN, from April 9th to 13th, 2013. One student will be awarded $200 for the poster or podium presentation that is judged to best implement either traditional or state-of-the-art anatomical methodologies in innovative anthropological research. Students will be judged on novelty of the research question and design, use of anatomical methodologies, and presentation style.
