For many dissertation projects, travel to libraries and archives is crucial. The Suzuki/Lindemann/Cruz Award is designed to help graduate students fund research trips. It may be used for brief journeys for archival research trips but may also be used to supplement other sources of funding for more extensive research travels. The funds are available anytime in the year following the competition, including the summer. 

Applications are due in spring of each year; the exact deadline and specifications are announced well in advance of the deadline. These require a proposal, budget, and a letter from the student’s advisor. Winners will be reimbursed for expenses based on the submission of acceptable receipts documenting legitimate research costs as specified in the original application.
