The UConn Department of Anthropology would like to congratulate Luke Anderson, Daniel McCloskey, and Srishti Sadhir on being accepted to the 2019 University Scholars program for undergraduate students at the University of Connecticut. The University Scholar program is a competitive program that allows for undergraduate students to design and build an in-depth study surrounding projects relating to their individual interests. Students work with faculty members in order to create innovative project ideas that have a global impact.
The department of Anthropology at UConn would like to congratulate our very own Dr. Deborah Bolnick for being the 2020 recipient of the Robert W. Sussman Award for Scientific Contributions to the field of Anthropology. The Anthropology section of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) established this award to recognize the accomplishments of mid-career anthropological scientists in the field of Anthropology. The AAAS cites Dr. Bolnick’s contributions to the science of anthropological genetics as both insightful and prolific.
