Christopher DeCormier Memorial Scholarship
The Institute for Mesoamerican Studies at SUNY-Albany is pleased to present the Christopher DeCormier Memorial Scholarship in Mesoamerican Studies. Every year, the award is given to one or more graduate or undergraduate students to conduct research on Mesoamerica. Preference is given to IMS student associates.
The scholarship was established to honor the memory of Christopher DeCormier, a SUNY-Albany student with strong interests in Maya culture and fieldwork. Proposed projects may be in any subfield of anthropology, but should focus on interpreting some aspect of ancient or modern Mesoamerican culture or society. Fieldwork should not be an end in itself but should contribute to an understanding of some feature of Mesoamerican culture or thought.
