CIS Summer Study Fellowship and Jeanne Guillemin Prize

CIS Summer Study Fellowship

Doctoral students may apply for summer support for dissertation research or writing that has an international component. Support may be requested either for fieldwork and/or archival research, or for home-based research and write-up. Grants will not exceed $3,500. The main criteria for determining which proposals will be funded are:
(1) the importance of the research question and the quality of the research proposal

(2) the strength of the letter of support

Jeanne Guillemin Prize

The Jeanne Guillemin Prize is an endowed fund that provides financial support to female PhD candidates researching topics that have an international component, regardless of their home department.

My hope is that the endowment will help women graduate students find new options for special projects that will energize their sense of inquiry and search for knowledge.” Jeanne Guillemin, who endowed the fund shortly before her death in 2019. MITNews
