History & Literature concentrators spend their summers in a number of ways--doing research, studying abroad, interning at a number of different organizations, and more. To the right, you'll see resources for identifying internships, as well as places where History & Literature students have recently interned. Below, you'll find a number of funding opportunities that have supported History & Literature concentrators in the past.
While History & Literature does not require concentrators to do any thesis research before the senior year, many students choose to do summer research as a way of enriching their college experiences. In particular, many juniors win funding to support senior thesis research conducted in the summer between the junior and senior years. Listed below are general resources for identifying funding opportunities as well as particular funds, grouped thematically and geographically. Note that most of the application deadlines are early in the spring semester, clustered around the middle of February. Some grants also provide funding for term-time research or the winter session. Deadlines for 2020-21 grants, if available, are listed below.
