REEI/Mellon Summer Pre-Dissertation Travel Grants

REEI offers two grants to support research-related travel for preliminary dissertation field activities such as exploring potential research sites, archives, and other research resources, establishing institutional affiliations, and identifying and meeting with scholars, archivists and specialists. The grants are primarily intended for doctoral students who will apply in the next academic year for funding to conduct dissertation research abroad.

Students who have reached the ABD stage and have formally begun dissertation research are not eligible for funding under this program. REEI/Mellon Endowment grants are limited to $2,000 per student, paid as a travel reimbursement.
