    Dear Alumni Relations,
    I obtained a Master’s of Applied Anthropology at Macquarie University in 2008. I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies at the University of Johannesburg in South Africa.
    I am writing to ask if you could recommend any funding opportunities that I could apply to in order to support my fieldwork and research.
    I appreciate any guidance you can give me on this.
    Kind regards
    Maria Rosa Rodner

      Hi Maria,
      Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately this is not an area that our office has much knowledge on, you might need to contact the research department to get more insight on this.

      Thank you!
      Kind Regards,
      Alumni Relations Coordinator
