Income from the Matthew Wiencke Research Fund in Classics is intended to help underwrite a program of modest grants for students interested in various research opportunities. These include: the senior "culminating" essay, Honors Theses, off-campus internships, archaeological fieldwork, and course-related field trips. Priority will be given to proposals for expenses directly related to student projects, such as travel to archaeological sites and museums, production costs, the acquisition of research data (in forms such as books, images, or data bases), and costs associated with an off-campus internship. Both the quality of the proposal and the feasibility of the project will be considered. The grant recipients shall be selected by a faculty committee composed of members of the Department of Classics. Please see the application (pdf) for requirements.
Review of applications will begin on May 1st. Students needing to secure funding in order to accept a position in a summer seminar, course, or excavation et al. may apply early to the Department and specify the program's deadlines on their applications. Receipt of applications closes on May 20th.
