IAP travel fellowships available for undergraduates


The Kelly-Douglas Fund, which offers traveling fellowships to undergraduates, is accepting applications for its fall term competition. The competition is open to all juniors and seniors whose Independent Activities Period plans include a research project that requires travel. The maximum award is $1,000.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday, Nov. 16. An application must include two letters: (1) the applicant's description of his or her goals and their relation to a field in the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (SHASS) or to a humanitarian project, including a clear estimate of the cost of transportation, lodging and other expenses; and (2) an evaluation of the applicant's goals and project by an MIT instructor.

These letters should be sent to Kristin Blank, administrative assistant in music and theater arts, Room 4-246. Questions may be addressed to Professor Lowell Lindgren, lindgren@mit.edu, director of the Kelly-Douglas Fund. For further information, visit web.mit.edu/mta/www/music/resources/kellytraveling.html.
