As part of its initiative to sponsor research and publication in the history of capitalism, the Hyatt and Cici Brown Chair funds up to five (5) research grants from UF graduate students for projects or conferences each Fall and Summer. These grants of up to $2,500 may be used to fund conference travel, archival research, or initiatives in the digital humanities. Proposals that deal with any time period or geographic areas are eligible, so long as they are related to the history of capitalism. As the object of these grants is to support a wide variety of research projects and present the history of capitalism as an inclusive field of study, applicants are encouraged to link their projects to the field in creative ways.
There are separate CFPs for research done in Fall and in Spring/Summer of upcoming months. The application consists of a brief research proposal, a CV, and a proposed budget. Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
