Research Project Support

The Humanities Research Center awards competitive research travel funding of up to $1,000 to graduate students in the School of Humanities. Awarded funds may be used for, but not limited to, travel to present papers at scholarly conferences, consult distant archives, or participate in workshops.

The Humanities Research Center awards one to two competitive travel awards of $2500 to $5,000 to graduate students in the School of Humanities who need to conduct research abroad over the summer. Awarded funds may be used for, but not limited to, travel to present papers at scholarly conferences, consult distant archives, interview scholars and authors, take courses, and/or participate in workshops.

The Humanities Research Center awards competitive grants that are intended to spark programming and curricular development in areas that do not necessarily fit within departmental structures, help develop innovative paradigms for conducting humanities research, or ask new questions within existing paradigms. Research projects may involve, but are not limited to, faculty workshops, conferences, collaborations with other institutions or individuals, creative works, or other endeavors that require financial resources outside the scope of individual faculty research accounts.
