Junior Funding Opportunities
In the spring, the Davis Center awards a limited number of research grants to junior history and history of science concentrators to fund research for the spring independent work. These grants are aimed at encouraging students to reach beyond sources available at Princeton, for instance by visiting archives or libraries in New York, Philadelphia, or Washington, DC. Students may propose a trip further afield, but such a request must be well-justified.
To be considered, a student must have compiled a strong record in departmental work. The application requires a detailed research plan and budget and a letter of support from the faculty member advising the student’s junior paper. Award recipients will receive a cash grant of up to $500.
The Department of History sponsors fellowships for juniors concentrating in History who wish to spend part of the summer between the junior and senior years accomplishing research for their theses. A second round of fellowship applications is offered for research conducted during winter break of senior year.
