Students interested in applying for the AFS Graduate Fieldwork Grant in the upcoming cycle (due date Feb 15, 2023) are invited to this session, facilitated by Dr. Dorry Noyes. We’ll discuss the purpose and uses of the grants and how they can fit in the overall arc of your dissertation/thesis process and career plans. Students will be invited to share, informally, their current thoughts on the progress and significance of their projects for feedback as they move towards proposal-writing. Since one purpose of the grants is to help build a cohort among students from different institutions, this will also be an opportunity to learn about the ideas and projects of your peers.
