University Alumnus and Regent Dick Cardin has made available funds to support research conducted by Arts and Sciences Honors students in humanities fields. These funds can be used to help defray costs associated with thesis research or with doing independent honors research. For example, a student might requests funds to support travel to a research library or to purchase special supplies or equipment needed for research.
Honors students should be nominated by a faculty sponsor, and the normal expectation is that Cardin funds will support independent study during the academic year, although summer research under formal faculty supervision will also be eligible. Not-for-credit projects may also be submitted. The maximum grant for any individual student projects will be $1,000. There will be two opportunities each academic year to submit proposals. The fall deadline is October 27, and the spring deadline is March 2.
Inquiries and proposals should be directed in electronic form to Interim Dean Katherine Black, College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Hartford. Selection of successful proposals will be the responsibility of the Dean.
