This is a new grant being offered by the Glasscock Center for Humanities Research. The purpose of this grant is to support travel to archives or to undertake fieldwork in order to further humanities and humanistic social sciences research. Equipment cannot be purchased with this grant. Each year, up to three grants of $1000 each will be awarded to graduate students in affiliated departments. Students are expected to work closely with their advisors on a project description, rationale for the grant, and budget. Projects will be chosen on the basis of the significance of the archive visit or fieldwork for successful completion of the research, and on the quality of the project.
This grant cannot be held concurrently with a Glasscock Graduate Research Fellowship. Funds cannot be used for conference travel. Preference may be given to applicants who have not received major funding from the Glasscock Center.

Eligibility: To be eligible, graduate 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.

Submission instructions: Applicants should submit a current two-page c.v. and upload signatures of support from their Graduate Advisor and Director of Graduate Studies along with the completed application form. (Use this form to gather the necessary signatures.)
If you do not receive an email confirming receipt of the application from the Glasscock Center by the application deadline, please call 979.845.8328 or email glasscock@tamu.edu.
