The Maxwell African Scholars Union Graduate Student Summer Research Grants
This year the Maxwell African Scholars Union (MASU) will grant awards to graduate students of up to $2,500 to support field research in sub-Saharan Africa during the summer of 2015. The purpose of the award is to provide students the opportunity to develop field experience, whether to gather preliminary data, make contacts, map topics, or increase the competitiveness of future proposals for funding. Any graduate student enrolled in an M.A. or Ph.D. program at Syracuse University may apply.
The awards are competitive and proposals are judged on the basis of (i) the quality of the proposed project or research, (ii) the organization and thoughtfulness of the proposal and (iii) the appropriateness and feasibility of the research or project plan in relation to the student’s background and qualifications.
You may apply for more than one summer grant from the Moynihan Institute, but you will not receive more than one in a given year from the Institute. Awards are ranked separately, so if your proposal is accepted by more than one committee, you will be awarded the better opportunity.
