The Dean’s Award for Graduating Seniors is designed to fund ($500-$2000) original research or creative projects pursued after graduation that are related to the academic concentrations of Gallatin students. In the proposal, a student will articulate the focus of his or her concentration, how the proposed project relates to it, and what the possible benefit of the project might be to the life or career of the student after graduation. Proposals should demonstrate a strong grounding in the research methodology or artistic process that are required to complete the project successfully. Awardees are expected to provide a written report on their projects by the end of the following year and may be asked to share their work with the larger Gallatin community.
