Mellon Foundation Summer Research Award 2020

Trinity’s College of Arts & Sciences has been awarded a grant from the Mellon Foundation to “build connections with critical thinking and strengthen the liberal arts.” The grant includes support for five undergraduate students to conduct research in the arts and humanities this summer. Trinity is a particularly suitable place to host these awards given our access to the rich artistic, cultural and historical resources of Washington, DC. We invite CAS students to apply for Mellon Foundation Summer Research Awards of $2,000 each. The proposal deadline has been extended to April 6. 2020.

The Student Experience

For Trinity students, an active life outside of the classroom is an integral part of the college experience. Many choose to explore the varied cultural, historical, and community events that Washington, D.C., offers. There is also a wide range of on-campus activities that take place every day that involve all members of the Trinity Community, including athletic events, service opportunities, student organizations, and Trinity Traditions that honor students as they progress toward graduation.
