The Career Development committee oversees the Professional Development Awards competition and organizes the Professional Development Workshop/Panel held during the annual meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists. The AAPA recognizes that the professional development of talented scientists in the early stages of their careers is critical to the continued health and vitality of the discipline. For that reason we award Professional Development Grants annually to qualified recipients, each in the amount of $5,000. Each year a group of qualified professionals with diverse research interests are asked to serve on the committee that reviews these proposals.

The Professional Development Workshop/Panel is held each year organized around topics of particular concern to our members who are in the beginning stages of their careers.
