Mellon Summer Study Grants

Mellon Summer Study Grants will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence and promised contribution to the development of successful dissertations. All enrolled students pursuing a Ph.D. in one of the participating departments are eligible to apply for Summer Study Grants.  Recipients must dedicate two full, uninterrupted months to work on their project. 

A call for applications will be distributed to all current students in the fall.  The application consists of a 25-word abstract and a 250-word description of the project outlining how a Mellon Summer Study Grant will help you make progress toward your degree.
