Glasscock Graduate Research Fellows 2022-23
The Glasscock Center for Humanities Research annually funds up to ten Graduate Research Fellowships at $2,000 each. Departments can nominate up to two graduate students to be considered for these awards. To be eligible, students in affiliated departments have to be working on a Doctoral dissertation or Masters thesis but could be at the initial stages of their projects. The outcome should be a dissertation or a thesis, or a significant portion thereof. These students will make up the community of graduate scholars who participate in the Colloquium Series and use the experience as a tool to improve their own writing and projects and help each other to improve the quality of the work being produced as a group.
