Art History Student Research Grant

Through the generosity of Dr. Rita Kepner '66, the Department of Art History has established the Art History Student Research Grant to support the study of underrepresented women artists in postwar American art, active circa 1945-80. This award is open to undergraduate majors and minors in art history and graduate students of the Department of Art History, by application. Research will be conducted as a part of an independent study, thesis, or doctoral dissertation under the supervision of a member of the Art History faculty. Awarded students will receive a grant of up to $2,000 in support of travel and research in relevant archives and sites, with the goal of producing an extended scholarly essay that would be considered for online publication and/or publication in a peer reviewed journal.

Interested students will submit a brief proposal (500 words) with a budget and CV to the department chair. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Anthony D. King Award

Through the generosity of Tony King, Professor Emeritus, The Anthony D. King Award in Art and Architectural History will be made annually to a graduating undergraduate major who has shown a strong commitment to issues of internationalism and globalization in the study of art and the built environment and has excelled academically.

Each spring, the art history faculty will name a recipient based on his or her demonstrated interest and achievement. The award will be given based on merit in the field of art history, in particular, demonstrated excellence in art history courses, leadership in the department and promise for a continuing career in art history.
