AMERICAN THEATRE AND DRAMA SOCIETY GRADUATE STUDENT RESEARCH AWARD
Purpose: To provide support for a graduate student conducting research in the area of American theatre and drama, recognizing that notions of “America” and the US encompass migrations of peoples and cultures that overlap and influence one another. Funds may be requested to support travel related to archival research, ethnographic or oral history fieldwork, or for other expenses related to research.
Eligibility: Any student currently enrolled in a graduate program in theatre/performance studies is eligible, as well as those in ancillary programs. Students need not be members of ATDS to apply. Please note that the applicant must still be in graduate school during the proposed time of use for the award.
Award: $400.00 + a one year membership to ATDS
