Funding for Projects
Students may be able to obtain funding for particular projects from outside the department. Both the H&S Dean's office and the College Provost's office have funding for students engaged in innovative work.
- If you have a project you would like to collaborate with a professor on, consider the H&S Emerson Humanities Collaboration Grant. This funds a student to do work with a faculty member either during a semester or during a summer.
- Similarly, the Dana Student Internship Program through the Provost's office might be worth investigating, either for an internship or a faculty-student collaborative project.
- The H&S Education Grant Initiative is a broadly conceived opportunity -- "activities and projects that promote student learning and achievement" -- that might be applied to any academic project that come with extra costs. For history students, this might include travel to a conference, to an archive, and more.
- The Emerson Internship Program can provide funds for an internship that is credit bearing, thereby defraying its cost to a student.
This does not exhaust the list of possible opportunities for students either within IC or outside of it. After all, there are grants, fellowships, and awards available from a variety of programs and foundations off campus. Looking into the assets available to you through the School, the College, and beyond is a wise way to make the most of your time here.
