The University of Memphis Department of Anthropology (my alma mater) is pleased to announce a new fellowship program for prospective MA students in applied anthropology at the U of M seeking to work in customer experience and business anthropology. The ALSAC/St. Jude Business and Design Ethnography Fellow will receive core training in ethnographic methods and apply their skills in a business environment 20 hours a week throughout the Academic Year in a research support role within the ALSAC/St. Jude’s Donor Experience Management department.
In return for their work at ALSAC/St. Jude, fellows receive full tuition reimbursement (up to $10,000) as well as a $10,000 stipend.
The application process is now open for Spring 2016 (due November 30th, 2015). For more information, please contact Keri Brondo (kbrondo at memphis dot edu) or visit http://www.memphis.edu/anthropology. This is a fantastic new opportunity that I would not have hesitated to take advantage of as a student, especially for learning and practicing business and design anthropology skills in preparation for the real world.
