SIMA Prospective Students Information
SIMA is intended for graduate students who are preparing for research careers in cultural anthropology who are interested in using museum collections as a data source.
The program is not designed to serve students seeking careers in museum management or whose research field is archaeology. Students in related interdisciplinary programs (Indigenous Studies, Folklore, etc.) are considered if the proposed project explores issues of importance to cultural anthropology and if an anthropology faculty member at the student's university commits to supervise its implementation.
Students at both the M.A. and doctoral level are considered for acceptance.
All U.S. students are eligible, even if studying abroad. International students can be considered only if they are enrolled in a university in the U.S.A. Canadian First Nation members are eligible under treaty agreements.
