The Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) Summer Research Awards:

Sponsored by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the VPR Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs, the purpose of these awards is to stimulate preliminary dissertation research for students who are at or near the dissertation proposal stage. Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to support graduate students as they visit archives and museums; engage in pre-field analysis and logistics and survey available sources in order to sharpen focus on a dissertation topic; and better position themselves for larger future dissertation research and writing awards. Eligibility: Applicants must be Ph.D. students in an arts, humanities or social sciences field who are no more than three years into their course of study (i.e., rising 4th years or earlier). New for this submission cycle: all aplications must be routed through the department DGS's. More information can be found here
