Funding

The Shuar Health and Life History Project has been made possible through the generous funding of a number of federal granting agencies such as the National Science Foundation, private foundations (Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research & LSB Leakey Foundation), programs within our universities (University of Oregon, Yale University, Harvard University, CUNY-Queens College), and collaborating agencies in Ecuador. We have also worked closely with a number of research collaborators in the U.S., including Drs. Leda Cosmides and John Tooby from UCSB, Dr. Thom McDade from Northwestern and Dr. Elizabeth Cashdan from Utah who have helped to support the research.
