The Dienje Kenyon
A fellowship in honor of the late Dienje M. E. Kenyon is offered
to support the research of women archaeologists in the early
stages of their graduate training. An award of $500 will be made
to a student pursuing research in zooarchaeology, which was
Kenyon's specialty. To qualify for the award, applicants must be
enrolled in a graduate degree program focusing on archaeology with
the intention of receiving either the M.A. or Ph.D. on a topic
related to zooarchaeology, and must be in the first two years of
graduate studies. Strong preference will be given to students
working with faculty members with zooarchaeological expertise.
• A statement of proposed research related to zooarchaeology,
toward the conduct of which the award would be applied, of no more
than 1500 words, including a brief statement indicating how the
award would be spent in support of that research.
• A curriculum vitae.
• Two letters of support from individuals familiar with the
applicant's work and research potential. One of these letters must
be from the student's primary advisor, and must indicate the year
in which the applicant began graduate studies.
The statement and curriculum vitae
should be sent as an email attachment in Microsoft Word. Letters
of support should be e-mailed separately by the people providing
them. Applications are due no later than December 1, 2008.
