The Division of Humanities in the Arts and Sciences awards summer research grants for graduate student projects under the Humanities War and Peace Initiative. Funds have been generously provided by President Lee Bollinger.
Funds are awarded to exceptional research projects on the subject of war and/or peace which engage a humanistic perspective. The approach to this topic is broad and students from any department in the Arts and Sciences are welcome to apply.
