Philip Levy Undergraduate Research Award in History Application
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. 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.
Students applying for the Levy will need to prepare the following materials to submit online via WiSH:
1) A 1-2 page research outline that describes the project.
2) A budget estimate (up to $1,000) for the costs of completing the research. This budget should clearly outline how the funds will be used (travel, research expenses, supplies, etc).
