Society for Applied Anthropology/Del Jones Award

Del Jones was a distinguished member of SfAA and an African American anthropologist who developed perspectives that could assist and transform the lives of oppressed and disadvantaged peoples. Following his death in 1999, close friends and members of the Society established the Del Jones Memorial Fund. This Fund supports a travel grant of $500 for a student to attend the annual meeting of the Society. The Del Jones Travel Award is intended to increase minority participation in SfAA, particularly African American participation, but also to honor the life and work of Del Jones independently of the minority criterion. The winning paper will best reflect the contributions and/or life experiences of Del Jones.
