Research Grants

The Center for Early Modern History has funds to be allocated to graduate students for dissertation research. Applicants must travel to archives between May 15, 2020 to April 1, 2021 for examination of materials that allow them to frame a dissertation topic or continue work on a dissertation-in-progress that emphasizes premodern studies.


Research Service Grants

The Center for Early Modern History has allocated funds to award up to $500 per person to graduate students who will travel to archives and need to microfilm or copy materials.

Applicants may be at any stage of their graduate school career, but proposals should be related to research for their dissertations. Project proposals must encapsulate any time period that can be construed as premodern, and all disciplines and geographic regions will be considered. Special consideration will be given to:

  • History PhD students with a major field in Comparative Premodern History

  • Early Modern Studies or Medieval Studies minors

  • Recent ABDs or applicants doing predissertation research

  • First-time applicants (previous grant holders may apply for a second grant)
