We are pleased to offer MVHR graduate students funding support for travel to present their research at academic conferences, which includes an exciting new partnership with the UMN Libraries:
CHGS / HRP travel awards funded by the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the Human Rights Program
Library Archives travel awards: the Kautz Family YMCA Archives HGMV Graduate Award, and the IHRC Archives HGMV Graduate Award
Funding for both types of awards will be provided to graduate students in the form of reimbursement for travel costs and registration fees for conferences, symposia, workshops, and meetings where they will present their work.
Topics must be relevant to the Holocaust, genocide, mass violence and other systemic human rights violations. Applications accepted on a rolling basis, first consideration will be given to those students who have presented or are scheduled to present their work in the HGMV workshop.

The African Studies Initiative (ASI), through a Title VI grant in African Studies from the U.S. Department of Education, is able to provide travel support up to $2,000 to University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, faculty and instructional staff. The Travel Grants are intended for projects that enhance the University’s undergraduate and graduate curriculum in African Studies and for projects that support the building of sustainable educational partnerships with institutions abroad on African Studies.
The ASI accepts applications on a rolling basis, but does require that all applications be received at least 2 months before the departure date.
