CASCA is launching a new award to help Canadian university and college anthropology departments recognize their top graduating Honours, Master’s, and PhD students.

Each spring, departments may select one top student at each level of study who has graduated or will be graduating in that academic year to receive the award. The selection process is up to the department, but we hope that the strength of the student’s anthropological research is a priority in the decision.

This year, CASCA will be accepting nominations from now until April 27. To be eligible, students must graduate between June 15 of past year and June 15 of current year. There is no cost for the institution and the students need not be members of CASCA.

A certificate and letter of congratulations from our President will be mailed to the Department for each award winner on or about May 15, for distribution to the graduands. Award winners will be acknowledged publicly on the CASCA website as soon as possible thereafter.

To nominate award winners, please fill in the form at
