HGMV Travel Funding

We are pleased to offer participating HGMV graduate students opportunities to apply for travel funding to support their presentation of research at academic conferences:

  • CHGS/HRP travel awards funded by the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the Human Rights Program
  • Library Archives travel awards funded by the Kautz Family YMCA Archives and the IHRC Archives

Topics must be relevant to the Holocaust, genocide, mass violence and/or other systemic human rights violations. Applications accepted on a rolling basis, first consideration will be given to those students who have presented or are scheduled to present their work in the HGMV workshop. The Archives award will be awarded for meaningful use of archival collections, so some early research is necessary before application.

Application Requirements:

  • Brief cover letter (addressed to CHGS / HRP and UMN Library Archives as appropriate)
  • Date and title of conference / symposium / workshop / meeting
  • Title of presentation and abstract presentation (500 words)
  • Funds required (up to $500 US )
  • Date and title of HGMV Workshop presentation
  • Date of consultation with archivist and collection(s) utilized (for Library Archives funding)
  • Appropriately and accurately cite Archives collections in future presentations / papers (for Library Archives funding)

Direct applications and questions to jhammer@umn.edu and hamm0229@umn.edu.
