amandajonesIn honor alumna, Amanda (Mandy) Jones, the Department of Anthropology is pleased to invite applications for the Amanda Jones Field Study Abroad Award. Amanda was an anthropology major with a keen interest in applied work. Her desire was to learn about other cultures by working in conjunction with communities to build sustainable futures.

The Amanda Jones Award will provide $5,000 to defer costs of an international field school or program in applied anthropology.
