Young Student Grant Program
The URC does not administer this award, but we want to be sure eligible students are aware that the DWA department offers fellowships throughout the academic year and summer through the John Parke Young Fund.
The John Parke Young Initiative on the Global Economy is pleased to announce the availability of financial support to conduct independent research, undertake internships, and participate in conferences, colloquia, or workshops. Projects must be related to world affairs or the global economy for support. Funds are available for short-term travel during the academic year and longer-term projects pursued over summer or winter breaks. Young Student Grants are awarded to students on a competitive basis, based on an application process and review by the Young Student Grant Committee. Young Student Grants are awarded up to $3500 per project. (Under extraordinary circumstances, projects requiring greater funding will be considered. However, the objective of the Young Student Grant Program is to provide support to as many eligible projects as possible.)
Examples of projects eligible for funding:
- Independent field research, including Senior Comprehensives research, in the U.S. or abroad
- Unpaid internships in the U.S. or abroad
- Travel costs and expenses for participation in domestic or international conferences, colloquia, or workshops
- Travel costs and expenses for research in the U.S. or abroad
Deadlines: Applications for grants of $1,000 or less will be accepted on a rolling basis. For grant requests more than $1,000, up to a maximum of $3500, please adhere to the deadlines posted on the John Parke Young Intitiative on the Global Economy page.
