Examples of appropriate needs are small items of equipment, special supplies, travel to research facilities or to attend relevant meetings, etc. Specifically excluded are general financial support, tuition, living expenses (except in connection with supported travel), and expenses that reasonably should have been foreseen and provided for in planning the degree program.

About fifteen grants starting at app. $1,500 and not to exceed $3,000 will be awarded. There is no restriction as to academic field, but the project should be focused on scholarly research rather than commercial or political activity, social activism, or other non-academic goals.
