Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowship in Anthropology and Related Fields: Open to Undocumented Students with or without DACA

The Wenner-Gren Foundation administers the Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowship for scholars of anthropology and related fields! This postdoc opportunity is open to undocumented students with or without DACA. The fellowship provides a stipend of up to $40,000 for nine months of writing. The Foundation awards a maximum of 20 Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowships annually.

From the foundation: “Recent PhDs in anthropology and related fields frequently lack the time and resources to publish their work. But their research is often the source of the discipline’s most exciting new ideas. This program supports emerging scholars whose work has the potential to transform our understanding of what it means to be human.

There is no preference for any methodology, research location, or subfield. Applicants can apply regardless of institutional affiliation, country of residence, or nationality. Independent scholars are encouraged to apply. Recipients can use the fellowship award while preparing a book, monograph, journal article(s), book chapter(s), or a combination of such publications. The Foundation particularly welcomes proposals that emphasize comparative perspectives, are likely to generate innovative approaches or ideas, and/or integrate two or more subfields. We also welcome proposals for writing projects that can stand as a model for new genres of scholarly communication.”


“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are temporarily extending the eligibility for this fellowship from up to 12 years after earning your PhD rather than 10 years. The Foundation will make allowances for periods of caregiving. Qualified scholars of any nationality or institutional affiliation may apply. The Foundation gives preference to applicants who are untenured or do not yet have a permanent academic position.”

The application deadline is May 1, 2023 for fellowships beginning between January 1 and December 31, 2024
