Graduate Travel Funding

 

Summer Project Funding

GSAS: information can be found here.
Ranieri Travel Grants: information can be found here.
Departmental Funds
The department has funds available for graduates to travel abroad for research purposes. Grants are usually in the region of 2000 USD, but may be larger or smaller depending on the number of applications. It is expected that you have applied to GSAS support (where appropriate) and the Ranieri Travel Grant; preference will be given to those students whose application to GSAS or Ranieri has been unsuccessful. Applications for modern language courses abroad are also welcome, and we would like to encourage especially the more junior students to look into this option. Please send a brief proposal (no more than half a page single-spaced), travel schedule and estimated cost to Nancy Smith-Amer in an email attachment, by 30 April. Students will learn soon after the deadline about the outcome of their application. 

Graduate Conference Travel

GSAS: information can be found here.
Departmental Funds
Depending on available funds, the department aims to support graduates to travel to conferences to give papers relevant to their research, complementing the funds available from the Graduate School of Arts and Science conference fund. Graduates must apply to GSAS in the first instance, and notify the department of the outcome. Funds from the department will not be released until the results of the GSAS application are known. The application should consist of no more than one page, including the following: title and a short abstract of the paper, brief description of the conference and its relevance, and a timetable and budget, plus proof of an application to GSAS. Applications are due on 1 September, 1 February, 1 May each year for travel in the period between two deadlines. All materials should be emailed to Nancy Smith-Amer.
