Scholarship Information

An award to help defray research costs for PhD students in cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. This endowment was named in honor of Dr. John M.

  • Eligibility: Dissertation level graduate students in anthropology. Multiple awards will be made available to doctoral candidates who will use the stipend for expenses related to doctoral research and/or preparation of the dissertation (e.g., photography, copying, illustrations, cartography, transcription, travel, field supplies, etc.). The awards are for reimbursable expenses only. Previous recipients of a Goggin Award are not eligible. Doctoral candidates specializing in forensic anthropology should apply for the Maples Award; likewise doctoral candidates in archaeology preparing to graduate within the year are expected to apply for the Fairbanks Award.
