The Taylor-Anastasio Outstanding Undergraduate Research Awards are in honor of Professors Herbert C. Taylor and Angelo Anastasio in recognition of excellent undergraduate research. Faculty nominated papers, poster presentations, or other scholarly endeavors completed the prior spring quarter through the winter quarter of the current year are eligible. Three awardees present their research results during Scholars Week in May.

Undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Anthropology are encouraged to present their scholarly work at the annual Scholars Week Anthropology Student Conference organized by the Anthropology Student Club. Past conferences have included two full days of papers, posters, workshops and roundtable discussions. In 2005 the Anthropology Student Conference began inviting an undergraduate alumnus to present the keynote talk. The 2005 Anthropology Student Conference Alumni speaker was Dr. William Belcher who presented his research on Baluchi, a Pakastani fishing village. In 2006 Dr. Pat McCutcheon will speak on archaeological research he has done in Mount Rainier National Park.

Several presentations will be from undergraduate students who have been accepted to present their papers at the Northwest Anthropological Conference.
