The best source of information is a book published each year by
the American Anthropological Association titled "Guide to Departments of
Anthropology." It should be available in most university libraries. It
provides information on each department of Anthropology in North America,
including information on what funding (scholarships/assistantships) is
available to graduate students at that department. It's also quite useful
because it lists the interests of the faculty that teach there, greatly
helping the choosing of a university to attend. Good luck...
