The fundamental objective of MMUF is to increase the number of minority students, and others with a demonstrated commitment to eradicating racial disparities, who will pursue Ph.D.s in core fields in the arts and sciences. The program aims to reduce over time the serious underrepresentation on the faculties of individuals from certain minority groups, as well as to address the attendant educational consequences of these disparities.
If you have questions regarding the application procedures, contact Pat Ravenell, MMUF Administrative Coordinator, email@example.com.
The History Department Undergraduate Research Fund awards grants to students who require funds to travel to archives or for research materials for extensive projects, usually as part of a history seminar, or as a continuation of work begun there. All students are encouraged to apply. The Department also has additional funds to support undergraduate research for students in the Honors program.
The Amy Gutmann and Michael Doyle Research Opportunities Fund is used at the discretion of the director of CURF to assist students with activities associated with their independent research projects. This may include covering the cost of travel to research sites, or assisting with living expenses during a research project away from campus. The funding is only available on an emergency basis when there are no other sources of funding available and can not be used in conjunction with other funding sources. Applicants can expect to receive no more than $500 from this fund.
Each year, the Undergraduate English program awards a small number of Undergraduate Research and Travel Grants. In cases where majors are engaged in promising research projects, we would like to reimburse them, either fully or partially, for costs incurred by travel to archives, as well as for photocopying, permissions, reproductions, and other legitimate research expenses. Researchers must have a Faculty Director enthusiastically willing to oversee and sponsor the project.
