Description of Scholarship

The Oscar Lewis Award is given annually to a graduate student (either MA or PhD) in cultural anthropology primarily for excellence in ethnographic fieldwork, either completed or proposed, devoted to an expoloration of the lives of an impoverished or otherwise disadvantaged group. Secondary consideration will be given to academic performance in classes and such scholarly productivity as publications, grants, awards, and papers presented. (By faculty nomination, no application.)
