(1) The AAA Committee on Ethics Small Grants Program:

The goal of the AAA Small Grants Program is to foster the development and use of curricular materials for the teaching and communication of ethics and ethical practice across the discipline of anthropology. Administered by the AAA Committee on Ethics, this small grant program encourages the awareness of and innovation in ethics curricular materials used in introductory, undergraduate, and graduate classes. Proposals for the development of curricular materials in a variety of forms are welcome, including texts, films, blogs, websites, exhibits, and other innovative media forms. The grant recipient(s) will have ten months to complete these new curricular materials, the results of which will be featured in the “Ethical Currents” column of the December issue of Anthropology News (AN) as well as on the AAA ethics blog, and highlighted at the Annual Meeting. DEADLINE: November 8, 2013. Please see http://www.aaanet.org/cmtes/ethics/AAA-Ethics-Grant.cfm for more materials.
