The Larsen Research and Travel Award provides support for graduate student research and research-related travel. All graduate students in the Department of Anthropology are eligible to apply. Funds may be used to pay for research expenses that will significantly increase the quality of the research project, including but not limited to travel to field sites or research collections, supplies and equipment, and laboratory analyses. Travel to conferences is not allowable.

Awards will normally be limited to $1,000. Larger amounts may be considered at the discretion of the Graduate Studies Committee. Any equipment purchased with award funds will become the property of OSU and will remain in the Department after the project has been completed. Equipment purchases may not exceed the funded amount.
