Continue past practices of supporting graduate student thesis/dissertation research. Application shall consist of a two-page (maximum) statement of purpose, methodology and timeline, and expected contributions to the discipline. In addition the proposal should contain a one-page itemized budget of the estimated costs, a one-page vita, and a letter of support from the student’s primary adviser. The maximum allowable budget for such awards may not exceed $5,000. The Chair of the CES Scholarship Committee will judge the intellectual merit of the application (or ask a CES faculty member other than the student’s adviser who is knowledgeable in the student’s subject area to judge the application). If the student receives outside funding for this research after the above application is submitted, the student must so inform the Scholarship Committee and the CES award may be withdrawn or modified. For 2021, applications are due March 1.
