Foundation Marjan Rens
The Marjan Rens Foundation stimulates and encourages anthropological research into farming communities, whereby research with a feminist angle takes priority.
Established after the death, at 39 years old, of cultural anthropologist and development worker Marjan Rens, the Foundation aims to support and fund activities that Marjan attached great importance to.In this way Marjan’s relations – family and friends - would like to honour her by continuing her work.
The research fund is aimed at students and professionals who study (farming) communities in upper mountain regions. On our fund page you can find out more about our fund, where to submit an application and how an application gets assessed.
