Jacob Climo student travel award

The 2024 Jacob Climo Award supports student costs up to $500 to present their work at the Association for Anthropology, Gerontology and the Life Course (AAGE) joint meeting with the Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) to be held in Sante Fe, New Mexico from March 26 to March 30, 2024. The award honors the scholarship and mentoring of AAGE past-president Dr. Jacob Climo, whose research focused on intergenerational relationships, the ethnography of memory, aging and elder care around the world, grandparents parenting grandchildren, and narratives about aging parents. Priority will be given to applicants whose presentation focuses on these topics but all applicants working on issues related to the scope of AAGE are welcome to apply. Visit the AAGE website to learn more: https://anthropologyandgerontology.com/.

To be eligible students must be currently enrolled in a graduate program in anthropology or gerontology (or closely related field) and be AAGE members at the time of application. For information on membership visit: https://anthropologyandgerontology.com/membership/. Students must have an abstract accepted for the AAGE/SfAA meeting in March 2024. Presentations can be in any form (e.g., roundtable, oral presentation, poster, etc.). Highest priority will be given to students traveling to the conference to present in-person but those giving on-demand sessions are also eligible to apply to have registration or other costs associated with the conference covered.

Complete the online form with contact information, institutional affiliation, and degree program. As part of the online form, provide copy of the acceptance from SfAA/AAGE for the conference, submitted abstract, and a brief statement of no more than 300 words that discusses the benefits  that the travel award and the presentation will bring to their academic and professional pursuits. https://forms.gle/81miQsUfJEtQouix8
