Short Term Research Outside of Cornell

Question

Hello,

I plan on doing archival research in NYC for about 1-2 weeks (weekends over the course of two weeks) and plan on writing an article on the archive for a course I am taking this semester.   I am wondering if Cornell offers research funds for students that are doing short term research outside of Ithaca? 

Best,

Response

Dear “Grad Student Who Needs a Very Specific Archive”

Cornell does indeed offer travel funding opportunities for both students conducting research in support of their dissertation or thesis, and also for students presenting at conferences.  Grant information and the application forms can be found here: http://gradschool.cornell.edu/costs-funding/travel-funding-opportunities

The research travel grant competition offers awards of up to $2000 per student and is intended to finance trips of 3-5 weeks in

duration, but there is flexibility for shorter or longer trips.   Priority for these grants is given to doctoral students in support of post-A Exam independent research travel, although research master’s students are certainly eligible to apply and routinely receive awards. 

Sincerely,

Jason
