The David A. Fredrickson Research Awards committee has raised the maximum award to $1000.

As many as FOUR awards are available for this school year. CRM students at SSU and staff/students at the ASC are eligible to apply.

The money can be used a variety of research activities -- including MA thesis improvement for those who have a near/complete draft.

The application process is simple and fast.

Last year's awardee was Hannah Ballard for her in-the-field artifact 'cheat sheet'.

The Award is funded by payroll deductions from employees of the Anthropological Studies Center.
