What is Lambda Alpha?

Established in 1968, Lambda Alpha is a National Honor Society founded to promote the study of Anthropology.   The name Lambda Alpha is composed of the initial letters of the Greek words  Λογος Ανϕροπου (Logos Anthropou), meaning the “Study of Humankind”.

As a National Honor Society, Lambda Alpha provides incentives for exceptional performance from Anthropology students in the form of a publication venue for student research (Lambda Alpha Journal), a national scholarship for an Outstanding Graduating Senior ($5000), and an International Travel Grant ($2000-6000) for graduate students.  More information on these grants and application forms are available at the national Lambda Alpha website.
