Important Update Regarding PEC Grants and COVID-19: While we cannot provide travel support at this time, we can accept proposals for other kinds of needs such as online course instruction, language learning or tutoring, purchase of books or other equipment needed for your research, purchasing software or technology needed for your research. Please visit the Funding for Faculty and Funding for Graduate Students pages for more specific details.
The Program in Early Cultures sets aside funds each year to support Brown University faculty and graduate students who are engaged in research focusing on the study of the ancient past in any culture or society. Priority is given to proposals with a strong comparative component, and/or a strong interdisciplinary orientation to the study of the ancient past. Examples of appropriate types of support can be found on this website's Funding for Faculty, Funding for Undergraduate Students, and Funding for Graduate Students pages, and projects funded by PEC in past years are featured throughout this website, including Courses, Events, Study Seminars, and other types of collaborative programming.
For questions or further information, please contact Sara Wintz, Program in Early Cultures Administrative Coordinator.
