The Foundation provides three awards each year at the Academy of Forensic Sciences Annual Meeting: The International Travel Award, Student Scholarship, and the Research Award. The Kerley International Outreach Award provides a travel stipend for an international candidate to assist with costs for attending the American Academy of Forensic Sciences meetings. The Kerley Student Scholarship is awarded to a graduate student who is continuing his/her research in forensic anthropology. The Kerley Research Award is presented to the paper or poster that best demonstrates excellence in the pursuit of developments in the field of forensic anthropology.
Please use the hyperlinks above or the drop down menu to view the individual awards, application criteria, nomination criteria, and a list of past recipients. These awards are paramount in supporting education and research in the field of forensic anthropology and promoting international relationships within the field.
While the Foundation will continue to support these awards, your donation will greatly be appreciated to ensure the continuation and expansion of the Award program.
