Timothy Murray Graduate Travel Grants

You are here

The Society for the Humanities announces a grant competition for the Timothy Murray Graduate Travel Grants in the Humanities. Grants up to $1000 will be awarded to post-A exam graduate students whose primary field of study is in the humanities.  Applicants must complete the A-exam before the date of the proposed research trip.

Funds from this grant cycle are intended to support activities occurring July 2021 through June 2022. Preference will be given to post-A-exam doctoral students. The competition will be adjudicated by the Humanities Council. 

Due to COVID-19, graduate student research travel is currently restricted. Before the Society for the Humanities releases travel funding, grantees must gain approval to travel by first contacting Graduate School Student Services (gradstudserv@cornell.edu), and, if approved, submitting a travel health & safety petition via the travel registry. Applicants do not need to gain approval before submitting an application, but funds for travel will not be released until approved.

1. Proposal title
