RITM Travel Award Application

RITM Travel and Research Awards support research, course development, and conference travel by Yale graduate students, Yale professional school students, and Yale faculty members on topics related to race, indigeneity, or transnational migration. Individual awards typically range from $200-500 for conference travel, and from $500-$2,000 for research and course development travel.

Application Deadlines: Details for 2017-18 will be added soon.

    The majority of RITM Fellowship funds will be awarded each year to support travel in the Summer and early Fall, and most funds will be allocated to students. Fellowships are competitive, and an RITM selection committee will determine the allocation of awards within several weeks of each application deadline.


    Applicants must complete all required sections of the form below in advance of the application deadline, which includes:

    • A description of the proposed travel and its importance (250-750 words).
    • A detailed, itemized budget.
    • A faculty advisor or Director of Graduate Study must submit a recommendation for each student applicant prior to the application deadline
