Summer Research Grants for Undergrads

Author: Renée LaReau

Interested in spending your summer abroad researching democracy, development, peace, or related issues?

Notre Dame undergraduates are invited to apply for summer research grants offered by Notre Dame’s Kellogg Institute for International Studies and Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. Several grants of up to $5,000 are awarded each year for research abroad (or, when appropriate, in the United States). Students must be in their junior year of studies at Notre Dame and be in good academic standing.

Ideally, student topics should relate to the research agenda of the Kellogg Institute or a research priority of the Kroc Institute. Last summer, for example, student grant recipients investigated issues that included indigenous life in Peru, women’s and children’s health in South Africa, young people’s perceptions of HIV/AIDS in Uganda, and literary censorship in Cuba.

More information and application materials are available on the Kellogg Institute website. The deadline for applications is Monday, February 28, 2011.
