STUDENTS IN THESCHOOL OF LIBERAL ARTS AND THE SCHOOL OF SCIENCE
The Branigan Scholars Committee invites proposals for The Branigan Scholars Grant until February 4, 2020.
The Branigan Scholars Fund, established in 1976 through the generous contributions of Mr. Edward Branigan, MC '40, has provided the financial resources for students to pursue projects independent of their course work. The aim of this program is to promote undergraduate research in the humanitiesby awarding each year several grants in excess of $3000 each for student-initiated projects. Each Branigan Scholar works closely with one advisor, a Manhattan College faculty member in an appropriate discipline, for a minimum of six and a maximum of nine weeks during the summer. The Branigan Grants foster the Manhattan College tradition of strengthening humanities education through the development of students’ scholarly interests and goals in close collaboration with members of the faculty.
Students enrolled in Manhattan College’s School of Liberal Arts or School of Science who are not seniors at the time of application are eligible to apply. The grant may be used to support a creative or traditional humanities research project. Applicants must submit a description of the project, objectives and work plan, and a letter of reference from the Manhattan College faculty member who will direct the research.
