Philip Levy Undergraduate Research Award in History

The Department of History is proud to offer the Philip Levy Undergraduate Research Award in History. This award is named in honor of Philip Levy, who held a B.A. in History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (class of ‘68), was the owner of Bridge Street Books in Washington DC, and was a member of the History Department’s inaugural Board of Visitors until his passing. This award provides support for undergraduate History majors who are completing a research project (such as a senior thesis or History 600 paper) in collaboration with a faculty supervisor, and need financial support to finish their project. This award may be given for short term research travel during spring or summer break. The successful applicant will receive up to $1,000 in support (depending on their budget) that they can use for travel, research expenses and supplies. Applicants will need to submit a budget estimate for the costs of finishing their research which clearly outlines how the money will be used, as well as a 1-2 page research outline that describes the project.

Note: The deadline for the Philip Levy Research Award has been EXTENDED. All application materials are now due by Monday, February 17th, 2020 for consideration in the spring 2020 awarding cycle.
