Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF) Program

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.

History Undergraduate Research Grants

The Department Undergraduate Research Fund in History 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. An on-line form and samples of previous work are available. Deadline for summer grants is May 13. Students may apply for remaining funds on a rolling basis anytime throughout the year.

Gutmann-Doyle Research Opportunities Fund

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.
