Audrey Christensen Award Applications due April 13, 2011
The American Studies department announces the Audrey Christensen
Award. Up to two recipients will be awarded $500.00 each for the
purchase of books for use in research and study. All students in good
standing pursuing a Ph.D. in American Studies may apply. American
Studies was given a small endowed fund to allow graduate students to
create a library for their research and study.
NOTE: The conditions of the award require that funds 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
2012; all funds must be expended between July 1, 2011 and June 1, 2012
and any unused monies will remain in the department. If you receive
the award, you will be expected to report on the books you purchase
with the donor.
Applicants will be notified of results in early May.
Funds will be awarded to the graduate student who best does the following:
1) Clearly describe the connection between books requested and their research
2) Explain how receipt of this grant will aid their education.
How to Apply:
In a 1 page essay, describe what books you want to buy and how they
will aid your education and dissertation research.
Submit your application to Melanie at firstname.lastname@example.org by the April
13, 2011 deadline.
