Pegasus Grants offer financial support to Art History majors to undertake research-oriented travels, field trips, and study visits. Students may apply for these competitive grants more than once, either as juniors or seniors, for a total amount of $600. Priority will be given to proposals directly related to the preparation of senior theses. Funds can be used to visit libraries, museums, archives, exhibits, conferences, and a number of art-related events and/or institutions considered particularly relevant to the development of a research project or to the accomplishment of a senior thesis. Funds can be used also to cover expenses related to interviews for Art History-oriented internships and graduate programs.

Proposals must contain:

  • A short description of the research project (max. 300 words)
  • A statement concerning the significance of this travel to the research (max. 100 words)
  • A preliminary budget of the expenses (organized according to the following categories: transportation, lodging, meals, and miscellaneous)

A report (max. 500 words), describing the most relevant outcomes of the research-travel, must be submitted by students no later than 30 days upon their return, along with original itemized receipts (including airfare/boarding passes, bus tickets, gasoline mileage, taxi fares, hotel/motel accommodations, meals, admission tickets, etc.).

Students may apply for this grant any time throughout the academic year. The department faculty as a whole will consider all applications.
