Colecchio Travel Award
The Rosa Colecchio Travel Award for Dissertation Research Enhancement
Programs are invited to encourage students to apply for the Rosa Colecchio Travel Award for Dissertation Research Enhancement. Only doctoral students who have been admitted to candidacy are eligible to apply. The travel award must enhance the dissertation in a way that would not be accomplished otherwise. Supported activities may include travel for research dependent upon:
* library materials not obtainable through regular channels
* archival materials
* other original source materials
* techniques, equipment, and methodologies not available on this campus
* opportunities to carry out extraordinary field research
This program cannot be used for travel to a professional meeting.
Applicants may request up to $300. one or more awards, depending on availability of funds, are made each year. Requests are reviewed by an Advisory committee of faculty appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. Awards are based on consideration of well-presented and justified need, and the merit of the project. Application forms are available on the Graduate School website.
Applications are due in the Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of the Graduate School by March 26.
Awards are announced April 20.
This program is funded through an endowment established by the family of Rosa Romano Colecchio with the Binghamton University Foundation.
