Thanks to the generosity of donors to the Nicholas G.

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. Please also note that previous recipients are permitted to reapply for these grants, but that, all else equal, first-time applicants will receive priority consideration.
The application process consists of the completion of the Application Form, available online at, along with the submission of a 750-word summary of your project and a letter of recommendation from your advisor or faculty member in your home department. The deadline for 2017-2018 Howe Grant applications will be Friday, February 16, 2018, at 5:00 p.m.
