Student Research Grants

If you missed the opportunity to apply for a History Major Research Grant for the 2013-2014 academic year, plan ahead for next year.

These grants reimburse students for expenses related to history-based scholarly projects. Examples include, but are not limited to, research or travel undertaken for a history-based Honors Thesis or Independent Study, expenses incurred during the preparation of a history-based conference paper, and/or travel expenses connected with participation in a history-based conference. Please consult your History adviser or the History Majors Research Grant committee for questions about other possible uses, which grant level suits your intended project, or related matters.

Typically, proposals include:

  1. description of the project (up to 500 words long), including a statement about its significance for your intellectual development as a history student, the specific aspect of the project for which you seek monetary support, and a basic work plan or schedule of activities for the grant period;
  2. bibliography of relevant secondary and/or primary sources; and
  3. proposed budget (giving reasonable estimates of research and/or travel costs).
