Award Information

Funds will support research experiences in Summer 2016 for periods ranging from 4-6 weeks. DHS anticipates making 10 individual awards. Applications from faculty/student teams are encouraged but not required.

DHS S&T will provide funding for travel expenses including lodging and per diem expenses up to $5,000 for participants who live more than fifty miles, one-way, from their assigned DHS Center or field study site. DHS will reimburse travel expenses for one round-trip airfare between the current address and the assigned DHS Center or research site.
