Howe Research Grant Application

Thanks to the generosity of donors to the Nicholas G. Howe Memorial Fund, CMRS will offer funding for graduate students working on any aspect of the Middle Ages or Renaissance.  First preference will be given to students traveling to appropriate research repositories.  Second preference will be given to students traveling to conferences/seminars.  The Director of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, in consultation with a committee of faculty affiliates of the Center, is responsible for adjudicating all applications for funding.

Once you fill out the below form your recommending faculty member will be emailed at the address you provide. They will be provided with a link from where they may submit the recommending letter. If you'd prefer, you may also send them the link directly here. The deadline for submission of all materials for the 2020 grant program will be 5:00 p.m. ET Friday, March 6, 2020.
