Departmental Research and Travel Support

Within the department, the Brown-McFarlan and Ferm funds support dissertation and thesis research, as well as travel to present results of research at professional meetings. Both funds are derived from contributions from alumni and friends of the department, specifically for the purpose of helping students with the expenses of their research. In order to conserve departmental funds for the greatest needs, students are expected to seek other sources of funding, from their advisors, the UK Graduate School, or professional societies, before funding will be made available from the departmental funds. Details of the application process, as well as application forms, and management of the awards are contained in the following files:
