HUSKEY TRAVEL FUNDS
A limited fund to allow students to present papers at meetings. In order to stretch the money to help out as many as possible, rules were established several years ago such that students may receive either $250 for travel between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mississippi River, or $500 for travel to any other point. Students may receive only one award/year.
The conditions under which the program was established stipulate that only students in the "classical" Arts&Sciences departments are eligible to apply for these funds. Students in programs funded through SOM are ineligible. All requests must be submitted and approved prior to traveling. All requests must come through the Directors of Graduate Studies to Aaron Mills. Awardees are notified through email.
To apply, fill out this form and submit it electronically to the French DGS.

The Camargo Foundation, located in Cassis, France, is a residential center
for scholars pursuing studies in the humanities and social sciences related
to French and francophone cultures as well as for composers, writers,
and visual artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, filmmakers, video
artists, and new media artists) pursuing creative projects. For scholarly
projects, research should be at a sufficiently advanced stage so as not
to require resources unavailable in the Marseille-Cassis Aix region. These
geographic limits affirm the Foundation's identity and mission as a residence
center for scholars and artists who are well into the writing/creating
phases of their projects as opposed to a research facility. Fellows will
receive $3,000 to be used for expenses connected with the dissertation.
These may include, but are not limited to, travel, books, microfilming,
taping, and computer services.

GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP IN DIGITAL HUMANITIES
Graduate students chosen as Scholars' Lab Fellows receive $10,000 awards, disbursed over two semesters, as well as consultative services by programmers, content specialists, and digital humanities experts in the Library. They also join a vibrant community of past Fellows and faculty, students, and Library staff interested in digital scholarship and gain opportunities to raise the profile of their research by participating in Scholars' Lab colloquia and online publications.
Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities employ technology in their dissertation research in transformative ways. Past Fellows have come from a variety of disciplines and have used spatial, temporal, statistical, text, and image analysis tools and methodologies to inform their scholarly practices. Applicants must have completed all course requirements and be admitted to candidacy for the doctorate in the humanities, social sciences or the arts at the University of Virginia, must be enrolled full time in the year for which they are applying, and a faculty advisor must review and approve the scholarly content of the proposal.

RAVEN SOCIETY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
The Raven Society funds several fellowship awards of up to $2500 each year for undergraduate and graduate research projects at the University. Last year, the Raven Society funded a diverse set of projects that studied the nutrient cycle in Costa Rica, electoral change in Bulgaria, the British constabulary in South Africa, cervical cancer screening in Senegal, and education for sustainable development in Chile.
As the University expands its global reach we believe it is increasingly important for students to pursue projects of global nature. It is our decision that the Raven Fellowships be targeted towards research conducted outside of Charlottesville. The Raven Society hopes to enable students to go out into the world, and then bring the world back to Mr.
Jefferson's Academical Village.
Eligibility: open to undergraduate and graduate students alike, and the students need not be members of the Raven Society to apply.
