2017-18 Summer Funding Request

The department aims to fund projects and summer activities related to dissertation research or writing, including preliminary work that might lead to the development of a Ph.D. thesis topic. Award amount has yet to be determined.

To apply please write a one page description of your summer project, budget and prepare a bibliography of 5-10 works relevant to your work and/or an indication of the kind of archive or research activities you would undertake over the summer.

Preference will be given to students in good academic standing who do not have incompletes on their transcripts, and for whom this financial support will make a difference in their progress to degree. Students who already have summer funding are welcome to apply, but we will give special consideration to those without summer funding.
