PSU Day of Giving

This year, PSU Anthropology is celebrating Giving Tuesday by joining in the PSU Day of Giving.

We are asking for donations to support summer experiences for our undergraduate and graduate students. Feedback from students tells us that summer research opportunities—in the form of field schools (for archaeology, bio and cultural anthropology) or travel for internships to work in museums or non-profit organizations—can truly be “life changing.”

Please consider making a donation of any amount ($5, $10, $50 or more!) towards our summer scholarship fund. We want to send as many of our students as possible to  practice their anthropology out in the world. Your support will make a big difference in the lives of our students!
