The J. Brien Key Fund
We are now accepting proposals from graduate students from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences for The J. Brien Key Graduate Student Assistance Fund. The Key Fund was established in 1999 by Dr. J. Brien Key to provide financial support to graduate students for travel-related research expenses.
Funds will be awarded to subsidize significant travel-related research expenses (e.g., registration and/or travel costs to attend a professional meeting, especially one at which you are presenting the results of your research, or the travel costs to conduct research or interviews critical for your thesis or dissertation). Awards of $500 will be available to graduate students.
All applications must be submitted as (1) multi-page pdf and labeled by last name, first name (ex. Smith, John).
Application deadline: Thursday, March 6, 2014, by 4p.m. Please email your completed application to Alicia Haley, firstname.lastname@example.org .
A complete application consists of:
- A proposal of no more than two pages explaining how the funds will be used. Included in the two pages should be a proposed budget, a brief budget justification, and a summary of other sources of funding that you have obtained or are available.
- A letter of recommendation from your thesis/dissertation adviser (which must be included at the time of submission).
As a condition of the award, recipients will write a letter of thanks to Dr. Key, providing details as to how they benefited from the award. “Thank you” letters must be submitted no later than Friday, May 2, 2014.
