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.
Through the Emerging Scholar Talk (EST) competition, CWiC celebrates both strong research projects and solid speaking abilities by providing students with a public forum in which to talk about their academic work. All undergraduates are invited to apply. The CWiC-EST Editorial Board will select students to include in the annual series and coach those students to hone their presentations.
**Please note that while we are accepting applications for the Fall CASRG funding cycle, priority will be given to submissions that detail projects which can be undertaken within the current COVID-19 restrictions (ie no in-person or on-campus research activities).**

The fundamental objective of the CAMRA Mellon Fellowship Program is to increase the national pipeline of undergraduate students who complete Ph.D.’s in core fields that engage with both the theoretical and practical underpinnings of multimedia research, interrogating the politics of representation and power at play in visual scholarship and media as well as harnessing the potential of visual methods to democratize the production of knowledge in academic spaces.
The Urban Studies Program, through funding from “The Gordon Bodek Program in Urban Studies for Enhancing Dialogue, Inquiry, and Public Sensitivity about Interracial and Interfaith Relations” seeks to encourage outstanding undergraduate research on issues related to this topic. The Gordon Bodek Prize will be awarded annually to a student in any of the undergraduate departments and schools at Penn for the best paper addressing issues of interracial and interfaith relations.
