The Jacobs Research Fund of the Whatcom Museum is pleased to announce
that, due to a generous bequest from the late Professor M. Dale
Kinkade, the amounts and types of annual awards have been changed.
There are now three categories of grants: Individual Grants ($3000
USD maximum), Group Grants ($6000 USD maximum), and Kindade Grants
($9000 USD maximum). Kinkade Grants can be used to support projects
requiring an extended period of fieldwork, including dissertation

Since its inception, the Jacobs Fund has supported anthropological
and linguistic research on the indigenous peoples of North America
(Canada, Mexico, and the mainland United States, including Alaska)
with a focus on the Pacific Northwest. Funds are awarded for work on
problems in culture, social organization, and language. The Fund
particularly encourages research on endangered languages and all
aspects of expressive culture.

The deadline for application is February 15, 2007. Applications can
now be submitted electronically. For more information, including
application forms and guidelines, see the Whatcom Museum website:
