Students must be currently enrolled in either the History of Science Graduate Field, or the Science and Technology Studies Designated Emphasis.

Students are allowed to apply once per calendar year for support related to conferences and fieldwork. Students who have not applied for funds before will be prioritized.

To receive conference funding, you must be presenting a paper.

Applications will be judged on the basis of how the grant advances the student’s development as an STS or History of Science scholar.

Students are expected to first apply for support from home departments.

Normal expenses associated with graduate school, such as book purchases, will not usually be funded.
