Funded by the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences and the Center for Ideas and Society, the Humanities Graduate Student Research (GSR) Grants assist graduate students in the humanities, arts, and humanistically-oriented social sciences. We consider the humanities, broadly construed, as academic disciplines and activities that illuminate the ways in which human beings create and explore a distinctly human life.
The GSR grants are typically reserved for those who have advanced (or will soon advance) to candidacy. Awards are made in varying amounts, but will not exceed $2000 per student. Awards may be used for travel expenses (transportation, lodging, etc) and materials needed to complete the research. Proposals unrelated to the completion of the dissertation or MFA will be considered only if funds permit.Students who have received grants prior to 2018-19 are welcome to re-apply. (Recipients of 2019-20 awards that have been extended due to COVID-19 travel restrictions are not eligible in this grant cycle.) The GSR awards do not support conference travel or presentations.
*Award dates will be adjusted as needed to adapt to COVID-19 related travel restrictions.
