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 LOGOS ANTHROPOU, meaning “The Study of Humans.” Alpha of Indiana is the Lambda Alpha chapter in the Department of Anthropology at Ball State University. Lambda Alpha Recognizes Student Achievement As an honor society, Lambda Alpha acknowledges superiority and provides incentives for exceptional performance by granting certificates of accomplishment. This provides an opportunity for faculty and students to work together on mutually advantageous projects. Lambda Alpha awards two national scholarships, and international research grants annually. A $5,000 scholarship is given to a deserving graduating senior majoring in anthropology. The society also sponsors a Graduate Overseas Research Grant Competition ($1,000-4,000). Only applicants from chartered chapters qualify to compete for these awards. The editoria
