Minerva Award


Deadline: 2016-03-04 (UVa Internal)

The College Council is pleased to introduce the Minerva Award. The Roman goddess Minerva can be found on the seal of the University standing on the lawn in front of the Rotunda. Minerva was chose for the seal because she is the goddess of wisdom and the sponsor of the arts and creativity. It is this spirit of pursuing knowledge and creativity that the College Council hopes to promote with the Minerva Award. Three Minerva Awards of $3,000 will be awarded in order to fund scholarly projects that will be conducted by College students during the summer. Applications for Minerva Award are due mid-February.


The College Council Research Grants are available to any student registered and regularly enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences. Grant proposals will be assessed based on the strength of the research question, the structure and organization of the proposal, and the integration of the project. Please note that there will be non-experts reviewing the proposals and that the proposals should be written for a broad audience.
