Mellon Dissertation Research Grants
The Mellon Foundation has provided funding to enable students to conduct dissertation research (including preliminary, exploratory research). The typical grant is $3,000, but may be adjusted upwards and downwards to accommodate an individual student’s needs. Funding will help cover research-related travel expenses (airfare, train fare, lodging, food, etc.), archive/library admission fees, special equipment and software, and other expenditures associated with research. The grant does not fund desktop or laptop computers, printers, or transcription services. When you apply for the Mellon Dissertation Research grant, you will also be automatically considered for the Sachar award; No additional paperwork is necessary. The 2013 application deadline has passed. Please check back in January 2014 for information about the next award cycle.
