Thomas Marchione Award:
Recognizing Outstanding Student Research
Honoring the seminal academic and humanitarian work of Thomas J. Marchione, this award is given to an MA, MS or Ph.D. student whose active engagement in food security and food sovereignty issues continues and expands Dr. Marchione’s efforts toward food justice, food access, and food as a human right. The award can be in recognition of exemplary work completed or in progress, or for proposed work in the field of food as a human right and the social justice aspects of food systems.
Ideally, the recipient will be working towards, in Dr. Marchione’s words, “the best and more sustainable approaches to fulfill the right to food.” There will be one annual award of $600. The award may be for proposed or in-process research or a research prize for completed work.
Eligibility: Open to Masters and Doctoral level students who will have completed their coursework and research proposal by the time of the annual American Anthropological Association meeting. Students already engaged in relevant research, action or advocacy may apply in acknowledgement of their accomplishments. Students must be members of the AAA to apply. Proposals must be focused on developing world countries.
