The Margaret Mead Award, jointly presented by the Society for Applied Anthropology and the American Anthropological Association, is awarded to a younger scholar for a particular accomplishment, such as a book, film, monograph, service or film, which interprets anthropological data and principles in ways that make them meaningful to a broadly concerned public. The nominee must be under 40 years of age on January 1, 1976, or have received the Ph.D. after January 1, 1976. The award bestows recognition on skills in broadening the impact of science—skills for which the late Margaret Mead was admired widely.
