Funding for Master’s Student Projects and Activities

Master’s students often seek funding for research, professional activities, and social events. Sometimes the request is for individual activity, sometimes on behalf of a group. Our School and Yale University have many funds to which students can apply. Among the most useful are the Master’s Student Travel fund to support attendance at a conference or symposium at which a student is giving a talk; the Carpenter-Sperry Fund for travel and research; the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies, which can help bring international visitors to Yale for a lecture or a conference; grants and contracts to faculty and centers for research; the School’s Student Affairs Committee (SAC), which supports activities by our many student interest groups (SIGs) and supports “big-ticket items” each term; and the Class of ’80 Student Project Fund, administered by the School’s Office of Development and Alumni Services, to enrich the quality of life of the student body.
