About the Fellowship

Fellowships up to $1,200 are intended to defray the cost of traveling incurred by researchers in pursuing their work-in-progress over the summer. 

This program does not provide funding for conference travel, equipment, food, or general office expenses.

Though the Fellowship Program is designed to support untenured junior faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars, this does not preclude senior faculty from applying.
