"Audrey Christensen Award"
Department of American Studies
Audrey Christensen Award Application
American Studies was given a small endowed fund to allow graduate students to create a library for their research and study. The conditions of the award require that funds can be used only for books and no other media. In addition, given the nature of the award, the cost of the books can only be reimbursed. We are unable to provide an outright grant of funds. This is an award for fiscal year 2010 - all funds must be expended between July 1, 2009 and June 1, 2010, any unused monies will return to the department.
For: All students pursuing a Ph.D. in American Studies.
Fellowship: $500.00 grants for up to two (2) students.
Due: Monday, March 30, 2009
