Research Funding

Students requiring financial assistance to conduct research (individually or in collaboration with History faculty), visit archives, purchase microfilm or copy primary source materials, etc. may receive funding from the Paula A. Treckel History Department Fund and the Kenneth K. Robertson ’65 Fund.  Both are administered through the Department of History. In an effort to support multiple research projects, total funding for each application does not exceed $500. Per Treckel and Robertson guidelines, funding can cover no more than two-thirds of a single project and is currently restricted to History majors.

Additional financial support is available from the Class of 1939 Senior Research Fund through the Office of the Provost and Dean of the College.
