Travel & Research Funding

ISAW students are eligible to apply for funding for academic travel and research from a variety of sources, including internal ISAW fellowships and university-wide fellowships at NYU.

ISAW Travel and Research Funding

Students may apply for funds to travel to a conference, lecture, or other academic event or research activity that will aid them in their program of study. Applications must be submitted at least one month before travel, but earlier application is advised; the faculty does not consider applications outside of their normal meetings. Applications for summer travel or similar purposes must be submitted by February 1st each year. When funds are limited, preference will be given to students who will be presenting or otherwise participating in an academic event and to students who have not had previous support. Please see the form for further details.

Note: All students applying for travel funding must demonstrate that they have also applied for any applicable outside funding to support their travel.

In addition, students are also able to apply for the GRI Summer Dissertation Writing Program, which provides funding to support six weeks of intensive dissertation writing at an NYU Research Institute location. Per-diem awards that are offered as part of these fellowships are not considered to be a form of "stipend" and do not affect students' funding packages from ISAW.

NYU GSAS Travel and Research Fellowships

NYU's Graduate School of Arts and Science has a broad range of fellowship opportunities for student travel and research, including the Dean's Student Travel Grant Program, GSAS Summer Fellowships, and the Polonsky Foundation-NYU Digital Humanities Internship Program.
