The Graduate Research Travel Grant provides supplemental funding for scholarly research travel that occurs during the academic year. Students in their second through fifth years of study are eligible for a Graduate Research Travel Grant. Applications from sixth year students will be considered if accompanied by a brief letter from the student’s director of graduate study or research advisor regarding how the research will assist the student in the completion of doctoral studies. There are three application cycles for this grant, and applications for travel must be received by the application due date for the expected travel term. Detailed information on the Graduate Research Travel Grant is found Graduate School Handbook. (Students enrolled in degree programs in the Division of Biology and Medicine are not eligible for this program.)
The Joukowsky Summer Research Award Program was developed by the Graduate School in 2012 to provide additional funding for scholarly activities outside of Brown during the summer months. Students conducting research or traveling for other academic purposes during the summer months may be eligible for this award. Academic purposes could include attending language programs, summer workshops, or other activities. Doctoral students applying for summer research after the first through fifth years of study are eligible for the awards. Detailed information on the Joukowsky Summer Research Award Program is in the Graduate School Handbook. (Students enrolled in degree programs in the Division of Biology and Medicine are not eligible for this program.)
