The Undergraduate Dean's Office provides small awards of up to $450 to students seeking support for faculty-mentored research, a scholarly project, or academic conference travel. These awards can be used at any time during the academic year, in the summer, or over breaks.
Awards are open to all undergraduates who are (i) enrolled at the college at the time of application, and (ii) enrolled during the period when the research, project, or conference travel will take place (or in the case of a summer project or conference, in the following fall semester). Haverford students majoring at Bryn Mawr are eligible for Dean's Office academic year funding.

Non-resident Aliens: Dean's Office funding awards, which are processed as fellowships, are considered taxable income. Nonresident aliens receiving fellowships that apply to activities that take place in the United States, scholarships, and/or grants in excess of tuition and fees will be required to pay U.S. federal income tax. The tax will appear on the student’s monthly statement of account by November for the fall semester and on the April statement for the spring semester. A student may be eligible for a refund the following tax year after filing a U.S. federal return. For guidance on filing your federal tax return, please contact Patti Lausch, Assistant Director for International Student and Scholar Services and Advising, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For guidance on how the tax on the fellowship is calculated, please contact Christine Eigenbrot at email@example.com.
Other Academic Year Funding Opportunities
Hanna Holborn Gray Research Fellowship
Through the Hanna Holborn Gray Research Fellowship, up to 15 students are selected each summer and have the opportunity to spend the summer conducting independent research. Students receive fellowships of $4500 while they do research that can either be the beginning of the senior thesis or a project that stands alone, but is relevant to their intellectual interests.
Bryn Mawr's web section covering fellowships offers a wealth of application, process, and deadline information for Bryn Mawr students. Fellowship opportunities include those for students before the senior year, fellowships for seniors and alumnae, and fellowships for graduate students.
A number of scholarships are available for students who want to study abroad over the summer at other institutions. Opportunities for summer study abroad are also offered through Bryn Mawr-administered programs: Institut d'Etudes Françaises d'Avignon, the Russian Language Institute, and the International Summer School in China.
