Through a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support the integration of study abroad with students’ senior-level work back on campus, we invite students planning to study abroad in 2013-14 and faculty to submit joint research proposals.  Students should develop proposals in conjunction with their faculty mentors to fund independent research abroad.  Highest priority will be given to proposals that will lead to independent senior work.  Depending on the specifics of the proposed research, these research grants will be between $1000 and $2500, and will be designed to cover research costs.  Students should specify the research costs that will be funded by the grant.  They can propose to carry out this research either during the time of their study abroad or immediately after their study abroad experience.
