Announcing our Autumn Student Travel and Research Grant Recipients
Congratulations to the recipients of the Autumn Student Travel and Research Grants! We received a record number of applications over this grant cycle, all an impressive array of projects and research. We are excited to be able to fund or partially fund projects or travel for 15 students- a record number of recipients for one round of funding.
These grants support students’ research activities, conference participation, and other academically-oriented travel needs. Recipients' projects explore subjects like studying the prevalence of Rheumatoid Arthritis among Native American populations; researching the history of the "Yellow Slave Trade," or human trafficking among Asian Americans; examining trends in Latinx voting behavior; and measuring e-learning efficacy among recent immigrant student populations.
The next round of grant funding will occur during Spring semester, with applications becoming available in mid-March, and awardees notified in mid-April. Announcements will be sent out via listserv, on our website, and on our social media.
