    Fall 2019 Applicants

    Good luck with your applications! I'm at Vandy, so feel free to DM me if you have any questions. Happy Holidays
  2. I started my PhD program at 30 with 2 kids under 5. Two years later, I now have 3 kids, ages 6, 4, and 2. You're not too old, and wanting kids shouldn't prevent it either. That being said, after working for many years as a PM in CRM, I can tell you that a CRM job is far less a desk job than academia. So, if what you do not want is a desk job, CRM may be the better option.

    Article vs. Dissertation PhD

    I know someone who is doing this at Indiana, and I've heard of a few other programs, also.
  4. Ah, I had forgotten about the GRFP. I think you're correct there. They do not find research directly, however. They provide a yearly stipend for you to live on. You could use that money however you like, of course, but it would replace any stipend your university provides. That being said, it is higher than most anthropology program stipends. Best of luck!!
  5. I can't speak to the Fulbright, but I believe NSF only funds doctoral studies and is only for students who are ABD.

    Awesome!! I'm so excited for you!
  10. If you're into Queer Theory, consider reading Chelsea Blackmore's work on queer theory and archaeology. It's awesome. I also just finished a book that came out this year called "As We Have Always Done" by Jeanne Simpson.

    Prepping for the 2018 cycle!

    I'd be happy to help if I can. I'm at a geographically focused program as well, so maybe I can offer some suggestions there. Just let me know!

    NSF GRFP 2016-2017

    I doubt this is it, although that would be awesome. They usually do scheduled maintenance periodically. Look for one on the 28th or 31st. That's my bet.

    NSF GRFP 2016-2017

    Also, the list of awardees will go down on the night of, presumably because they are posting this year's awardees.
