Research and Travel Funding Support

The WHC earmarks funding for graduate students and faculty members (including both tenure-stream and non-tenure-stream) to reimburse eligible costs for attending conferences or conducting research. We welcome applicants from all disciplines.  We hold calls for proposals during the spring term. We will specify the amount to be awarded at that time.  Please click here for a list of past award winners.

In the 2021-2022 academic year, the WHC sponsored five projects by funding expenses related to research and conference presentations for individuals working on projects having to do with the global or transnational past: 

Sergio Cabrles, Sociology

Dr. Margarita Creamer Delgado, Religious Studies

Dr. Niklas Frykman, History

christina ong, Sociology
