Ad Hoc Grants for Graduate Students
Grants made by the Program in Early Cultures to graduate students are normally top-up funds, intended to supplement other sources of support. PEC grant amounts normally range from approximately $300 to $500. Requests for larger amounts will be considered, particularly in the case of support for organizing and hosting relevant workshops. Applications will be considered twice a year. Apply by April 15, 2019 or November 1, 2019.
Examples of projects for which PEC may offer graduate support include:
