Department of History
Funding and Financial Aid
Research and Travel Funding
Doctoral students in History in good standing are eligible for departmental funding of travel in support of research and conference presentations through applications submitted once per year, in either fall or spring semester. They are additionally eligible for one-time funding in support of language or other essential research skills acquisition. The department maintains an internal database of external funding competitions and sample applications.
The History Department offers two sources of funding:
- Research and Travel Funds supports winter and summer research work and conference presentations by doctoral students.
- The Graduate Open Fund support research and career development activities not normally covered by any of these sources (e.g. MA research, job hunt expenses.)
Ph.D students at Brown may match or augment those funds through a number of university sources for conference and research travel.
