GSAS students in the Divisions of Creative Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences who apply for and receive summer funding from the university either through GSAS, the Mandel Center for the Humanities, one of the Centers or another internal source can receive a maximum $6000 per summer in an effort to share (limited) institutional resources across more students. 

For example: 

  • Student A applies for Connected PhD funding and receives $4000. 
  • Student A also applies for a GSAS Research Award and receives $1000. 
  • Student A then applies for a GSAS/Mandel Center Summer Dissertation Writing Award, which is typically $2000. Student A will only receive a $1000 Summer Dissertation Writing Award because they have reached the maximum of $6000.
Internally, GSAS will reserve the right to manage the cap across funding sources as needed.
