AwardsHuman Rights and Gender Violence: Translating International Law into Local Justice by Sally Engle Merry
As part of its mission to promote excellent scholarship and effective communication in the social sciences and humanities, SAR offers two competitive awards.
Often called the “Pulitzer Prize of anthropology,” the J. I. Staley Prize is an annual $10,000 award given to a book that represents the best writing and scholarship in anthropology.
The Arroyo Hondo grant program awards funds to scholars who wish to work with this important archaeological collection, which was assembled during an interdisciplinary investigation conducted by SAR in the early 1970s.
SAR has joined in a Southwest Archaeological Partnership to offer an annual prize for an outstanding public education or outreach program anywhere in the United States, Canada, or Mexico.
