The Frank and Alice Adelberg Summer Research Awards
The Program in International Studies administers the Frank and Alice Adelberg Summer Research Awards in human rights, humanitarianism, and conflict resolution. This student research program has been made possible by the generosity of the Frank and Alice Adelberg Charitable Estate, Stephen M. Harnik, P’14, Executor.
The Adelberg Awards will grant $4,500 per awardee for up to three sophomore or junior students in good academic standing who have an interest in any dimension of human rights and conflict resolution around the world.
Applications must include:
- A research plan approved by a faculty sponsor
- A letter of reference from the faculty sponsor
- A three-page research proposal
- A transcript
- A resume
The research plan should indicate the issue the student would like to research and as much detail as possible about the research that will be conducted.
The deadline for summer 2015 projects is April 1, 2015.
Once applications are reviewed, finalists will be invited to an interview in mid-April.
Applicants should note that for travel to countries on the State Department travel warning list, funding will be contingent upon the successful completion of the Johns Hopkins University travel review process.
The Robert Tucker Award
The Tucker Award is presented to the best international studies thesis in a given year.
Brown Family Travel Fund
The Brown Family Travel Fund is an endowment supported by the H.L. and Elizabeth M. Brown Foundation. The fund is geared toward rising or current seniors in the international studies program. Funding for travel-related expenses is awarded based on submitted proposals for projects (research projects, international conferences, etc.) that students wish to complete during their senior year or the summer preceding it.
The amount of the stipend is limited and will be determined based on available funds and the number of selected students. The stipend may be used by students to partially support the costs of transportation and reasonable lodging expenses in the foreign country.
Should you wish to submit a proposal for funding by the Brown Family Travel Fund, please send a one-page summary of your proposed project, an unofficial copy of your transcript, and a proposed budget to Sydney Van Morgan (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the appropriate deadline:
November 30: Intersession/Spring projects
May 31: Summer/Fall projects
