Norm and Sibby Whitten Awards

Norm and Sibby Whitten AwardNorm and Sibby Whitten AwardSALSA has been able to offer these two awards, thanks to the generosity of Norman Whitten Jr. and Dorothea “Sibby” Scott Whitten:

The Norm and Sibby Whitten Research Fund supports pre-project travel grants for full- time graduate students in the early stages of formulating their dissertation research proposal.

The Norm and Sibby Whitten Publication Subvention is designed to assist with the publication of original monographs and peer-reviewed articles that make an important contribution to anthropological scholarship on lowland South America or to the discipline more generally.
