Martin Ottenheimer Award for Adventurous Anthropology
Anthropologist Martin Ottenheimer (PhD Tulane U 1971), now professor emeritus at Kansas State, is internationally known for his ethnographic research in East Africa, especially the Comoro Islands, as well as major publications on kinship and cousin marriage. He was a Department Head at K-State (1987-1993), was elected President of the Central States Anthropological Society (1994-1995), and served on the Executive Board of the American Anthropological Association. He has lectured in Africa, Europe, and Australia, and his visiting academic positions include Ludwig-Maximilian University, Munich, Germany (1990), and a Fulbright Scholar at Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic (2004-2005). A world traveler and a champion sailor, Dr. Ottenheimer also serves as a Senior Judge, US Sailing Association.
This student award has been established in recognition of the adventurous spirit that guides Dr. Ottenheimer and many fellow anthropologists in their quest for knowledge about peoples and cultures all across the world. Eligible for this award ($300) are undergraduate students majoring in anthropology, who have at least one more semester left of their undergraduate program at the time of application. To be seriously considered, they must have a good academic record (minimum GPA 3.5), and a specific planned project that demonstrates their adventurous spirit as a budding anthropologist. Each contender will send a 1-page curriculum vitae and a roughly 2-page project proposal (including details about how the funding will be spent) to Dr.Durband at email@example.com by a date TBD. The winner will be committed to make a presentation for the Anthropology Club before their graduation (within the following year).
