Additional Funding during COVID-19

Book Fund

The Department has funds available to Political Science graduate students who need to purchase books and other media for their courses, research, and milestone completion (qualifying exams, prospectus, etc) during the COVID-19 crisis.  We ask that students first seek out the University Library’s online resources, and apply to purchase those materials that the University cannot provide. Stephen Monteiro will support purchasing. Please complete this form to apply

Graduate Student Research Bridge Grant

The Department has limited funds available Political Science graduate students who encounter unexpected expenses during the course of their work. These funds are generally small ($200 - $500) and are intended to cover costs directly related to research activities. We have currently expanded the Bridge Grant to include expenses related to the transition to remote learning and teaching due to the COVID-19 crisis. At this time, we are not able to support costs related to meals or per diem. If you have questions about allowable costs, reach out to  Stephen Monteiro. Please complete this form to apply.

The Department is pleased to offer the Minar Memorial Summer Award again this year!  Complete the application.
