HART students interested in applying for a spring 2017 Downing grant must submit their applications no later than Monday, February 6. The department awards these Downing grants for travel to exhibitions and research centers to supplement academic instruction for HART majors who are in the Honors Program, in advanced seminars, or in upper-level “W” (writing) courses. These grants provide assistance for up to $1,500 in travel costs.
Applications should be addressed to the Downing Grants Committee, c/o Professor Elizabeth Moodey and submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 6.
The application should consist of a detailed proposal of one page explaining the purpose and rationale of the proposed travel; projected costs (accommodation, food, travel expenses, and research costs); and a supporting letter by the instructor in charge of the project.
