The Jürgen Saße Award is given annually to a student working on a diploma, state examination, masters, or doctoral thesis dealing with indigenous peoples in Canada. The price of EUR 1000 is a financial grant for project-related academic studies in Canada. Application is open to students from all disciplines (e.g. Art, Linguistics, Geology, Geography, Anthropology) whose theses require a research stay in Canada.
The board or an appointed committee decide on awarding the prize. The family of Jürgen Saße expresses the wish to meet the winner in person and to see the completed work. This is not only a fantastic research opportunity but would enhance any CV or college application.
Only one thesis is selected from hundreds of applicants.
There are no costs involved with the application for this prize.
Applicants must present outstanding research in the field of anthropology and indigenous studies - more specifically, it must explicitly deal with the indigenous peoples of Canada. Individuals with excellent writing, analytical and critical skills, and the ability to gather, assess and interpret data, will be considered.
The work submitted for this competition involves several years worth of conducted research.
Proposals for this award can be submitted to the dean of your faculty, or online.
Please add a copy of the work and a detailed report.
