Grad Student Resources

 

TASA

The Tulane Anthropology Student Association (TASA) is the graduate student organization whose year-long representatives serve as liaisons between the anthropology faculty and student populations. TASA representatives also organize the colloquium series. Colloquia are held in the first floor of Dinwiddie Hall roughly every other Friday of a given semester and provide a venue for upper level graduate students, faculty members and outside scholars to present and discuss their anthropologically-themed research. TASA representatives also attend Graduate School Student Association (GSSA) as well as Graduate and Professional School Association (GAPSA) meetings and participate in the decisions made by these overarching Tulane graduate student organizations.

Research Funds

Tulane's Anthropology Department is pleased to offer grants-in-aid from two sources:

  • Grants-in-Aid from the Anthropology Graduate Student Fund
  • Grants-in-Aid from the Mesoamerican Ethnohistory Fund
