National Science Foundation

High-Risk Research in Physical Anthropology and Archaeology (HRRPAA)

This program gives small awards that provide investigators with the opportunity to assess the feasibility of an anthropological research project. It is required that the proposed activity be clearly high risk in nature. The information gathered may then be used as the basis for preparing a more fully developed research program. A biological anthropologist or archaeologist may desire to search for primate or hominid fossils, and/or artifacts, features, and sites. The location of appropriate geological formations or occupation sites may be suggested by early documents in a library, but a reconnaissance trip to the area is necessary to assess the ability to locate suitable sites and to gain permissions and logistical support to conduct the research.

Deadline: Proposals accepted anytime - Investigators must contact the cognizant NSF Program Director before submitting an HRRBAA proposal. This will facilitate determining whether the proposed work is appropriate for HRRBAA support.
