Support the Department of Anthropology and Sociology

Did you know that you can directly support our Anthropology and Sociology students with your donation?  Donations provide support for:

  • conference costs for students presenting their research at academic conferences
  • field trips and other activities that enable students to expand on classroom content  
  • visiting speakers – researchers and practitioners – on Anthropological/Sociological topics

In Spring 2018, we created an Anthropology & Sociology Student Research fund to help students with the costs of doing research and presenting at conferences.  Information about the fund can be found here: Please note that you can still donate through our USM Foundation link even though our Eagle Fever fund drive is over.  

There are several ways to make your donation: 

1) You can donate online at our USM Foundation link:

  • If you want to support our Anthropology & Sociology Student Research fund, please note that in the “Special instructions for your gift” box under “Additional Gift Info” 

2) You can mail a check:
