Funding Opportunities for Students

The Rohatyn Center is a valuable resource for students seeking financial support for on-campus events; overseas research to write senior theses; and connections to funding opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate study, research, conference attendance, internships, and experiential learning.

Three grants are administered by the Center. The RCGA Summer Research Grant provides funding for overseas research for juniors preparing to write senior theses during the summer before senior year, while the RCGA Study Abroad Research Grant provides funding for research either during their study-abroad program or immediately following the program. Finally, grants from the Padma Desai Fund provide funding opportunities for students interested in conducting research or an internship while studying abroad in Russia.

“Getting to be a part of the academic process while interning at the RCGA has made me a stronger student. Seeing the stages of development that the faculty members here go through when coming up with a research question was fascinating, and really showed me how to approach and break down any problem, no matter how large.”
—Greg Treiman ’19, RCGA Intern
