RCD Special Projects Fund

The RCD is pleased to announce that we will make available to students a "Special Projects Fund." These are limited funds that majors and minors in the RCD's programs (Africana, American, Asian American, Colonialism, and Latino Studies) may apply for in order to defray the cost of attending a conference to present a paper (sophomores through seniors); to enroll (as a sophomore or junior) in a pedagogical opportunity, workshop, or course focused on the thematic issues at the core of the RCD's mission and that will enhance your work within your RCD major/minor; or to conduct research outside of the Boston area for a project within your major/minor (sophomores through seniors). Seniors applying for these funds must demonstrate that they will support their work in the majors/minors during their senior year (i.e. the funds cannot be used for work to be done after graduation). Students may apply up to two times and only once per academic year. In order to be eligible for these funds you must submit a 1-page proposal, which you should attach to this application, describing the undertaking, why it is relevant to your major/minor, including a statement indicating the amount of funding requested and how the funds will be used. You must also include the name of your major/minor advisor whose endorsement will be sought upon receipt of your proposal. A typical award will be approx. $250.

Send this application and 1-page proposal electronically to Associate Professor Adriana Zavala, Director, RCD; please copy Cynthia Sanders.

Application and proposal must be received 4-6 weeks before scheduled event.
