Penn Museum Field Research Grants

The Penn Museum provides support for current Penn undergraduate and graduate students to pursue field research related to Archaeology and Anthropology. Read about past projects funded by Museum grants under Students in the Field on the Penn Museum Blog.

The Penn Museum accepts applications twice a year for winter and summer projects. Requests for grant support up to a maximum of $1050 will be considered. 

Applications should prepare:

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.

Penn English Undergraduate Research Grants

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.

Communication within the Curriculum

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. Emerging Scholars may present any type of research in any field that they have conducted independently at Penn. This may include independent studies, senior theses, class projects, etc. All undergraduates in all four schools are welcome and encouraged to apply.

College Alumni Society Undergraduate Research Grant

**Please note that priority will be given to submissions that detail projects which can be undertaken within the current COVID-19 restrictions.**
