The "Greenberg Scholar" Senior Honors Thesis Grant Program

Beginning in the 2016-2017 academic year, the "Greenberg Scholars" fund will offer small grants ranging from $200 to $1500 to be used for research-related expenses, such as essential hardware or software, digital recorders, travel or other justifiable expenses that facilitate the gathering or analysis of evidence to support a high-quality honors thesis.

This new funding opportunity is especially valuable for those students who plan to conduct original research; although, all honors thesis writers are encouraged, though not required, to apply. 

To apply, please prepare: 1) a brief statement of research objectives, 2) a budget that includes your projected research-related expenses, and 3) a supporting statement from a faculty member.  These materials should be submitted to the Honors Director, Professor Jill Greenlee, no later than October 15, 2016

A committee of Politics faculty members will consider all applications, and funding decisions will be made within 10 days of the application deadline. 

In the spring semester, all "Greenberg Scholars" will participate in a panel where they will present their research.  Greenberg Scholars will be required by the terms of their grant to present at this event. 

This funding opportunity was made possible by a generous donation from the Joshua Greenberg Memorial Fund.  Joshua Greenberg (1970-1998) graduated from Brandeis, '92, with a major in Politics.  The Joshua Greenberg Memorial Fund was established by Joshua's family and friends to honor his life and preserve his memory.
