Summer Grants for Doctoral Research

As the spring semester wraps up, it comes time to consider applications for the Summer Grants for Doctoral Research, also known as Wilson Grants. Usually, the department can offer two $250 grants intended to support summer research to work on an article for publication.

"The principal consideration for the Wilson Grant is the likelihood that the proposed activity will result in publication. Preference will be given to applicants who have already taken steps toward that end and can express their plans in concrete terms. The application should address the nature, significance, current status and intended direction of your project; as well as the specific ways in which it would benefit from the Wilson grant."

To Apply:
Please submit a brief cover letter with your name and project, along with CV and a one-page description of the project to Amanda Riley by Monday, May 4, 2009. The committee will review projects on a blind-submission basis, so please include your name only on the cover letter.
