The Kākano Fund supports graduate students studying for degrees in Social or Cultural Anthropology at New Zealand universities. The Fund currently gives more to Social or Cultural Anthropology graduate students than it receives in income. Your donation will help ensure the sustainability of this fund.
We are pleased to invite applications to the Kākano Fund from students enrolled during 2018 in a degree course for a BA Hons or MA in Social and/or Cultural Anthropology (consideration will also be given to PhD students if funding permits). Applications are due by 31 May 2018.
Four MA candidates have received Kākano Awards in the second round for 2017.
Applications are now open for the second round of Kākano Fund Awards for 2017. Applications are due 25 October 2017.
Through a generous award from the Wenner-Gren Foundation, as well as funds from the ASA, AAS and ASAA/NZ, we have funds available to support delegates attending the 2017 Shifting States conference in Adelaide.
Please visit the conference website for more information about the conference theme, keynote presentations, events and panels, and for practical information about Adelaide.
Applications for the second round of Kākano Fund awards are now open. Applications close 21 October 2016.
Congratulations to four graduate students who have received Kākano Fund Awards in the first round for 2016.
The Wenner-Gren Foundation has recently launched two initiatives to raise the public profile of anthropology as part of its 75th anniversary celebrations in 2016.
