The Dan David Prize laureates annually donate twenty scholarships of US$15,000 each to outstanding doctoral and postdoctoral students of exceptional promise in the chosen fields for the current year. Ten scholarships are awarded to doctoral and post-doctoral students at universities throughout the world and ten scholarships at Tel Aviv University. The Dan David Prize is granted according to merit alone. To find out more and to apply please visit here.
The Humanities Center welcomes proposals for one graduate student research grant of $4,000 for the summer of 2011. The objective of the grant is to provide support for an advanced ABD student in either English or History. Ideally, the awarded student would finish his/her dissertation during the 2011-2012 academic year. The projects do not need to relate to the Humanities Center theme of the year. The student who receives the grant will be expected to demonstrate his/her progress in Fall 11 by giving a presentation on the aspect of his/her dissertation developed. The proposals will be assessed in terms of both the substance of the research project as well as the candidate’s plans for sharing its outcome with the humanities community. Advanced ABDs in English and History are welcome to apply. Exceptions: those who have been awarded external or internal grants for the same summer and those who are teaching during any of the 2011 summer sessions at Lehigh or elsewhere. The proposals will be evaluated by the Humanities Center Steering Committee. The grant awardee will be announced on April 29.
The proposal must include the following:
1 page explanation of: 1) dissertation project; 2) stage of the project; 3) specific description of the part of the project that will be pursued during the summer
Explanation of how the candidate will share the results of his/her research activities with the community
Statement indicating that no other grant has been awarded to the candidate for the same summer and that s/he is not teaching during this summer at Lehigh or any other institution.

Our world is changing faster than ever before--technology is developing at an unprecedented rate and the world faces extraordinary challenges with solutions based in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). What is needed to prepare STEM graduate students to meet these modern day challenges? Fundamental changes are also occurring in the career options for STEM professionals. What is necessary to navigate the career pathways of the future?
The Division of Graduate Education at the National Science Foundation challenges STEM graduate students across the nation to submit innovative ideas to prepare them for tomorrow’s opportunities and challenges. Entries are solicited for ideas with the potential to improve graduate education and professional development. Ideas can be directed toward, for example, students, faculty, departments, institutions, professional societies, and/or federal agencies. Make your voice heard on STEM graduate education!
Be sure to include the following elements in your submission:
The purpose of the Travel Grant Program shall be to assist graduate students in attending professional conferences, both as presenters and attenders. Starting this semester, students attending case competitions and traveling to archives are also eligible. The program is intended to cover expenses that graduate students would otherwise be forced to pay out-of-pocket. It is meant to supplement existing funds and not to supersede them. Please note that travel grant applications must be turned in 15 days prior to the date of travel for the conference. More information & applications here.
Your department (or departmental unit) must have an active representative in the Graduate Student Senate (GSS) from the date of application through the dates of the conference, case competition, or archival travel. It shall be the responsibility of the student to ensure his/her unit maintains active status. All approved travel grant applications are contingent upon verification of active unit status.
Finally, allrecipients of a Travel Grant who present at a conference must submit an abstract for the Graduate Research Review.
These grants are available to all Lehigh University students. They are awarded based on the student-demonstrated significance of the project and its relationship to his/her education goals. Preference is given to undergraduates, but graduate students with meritorious projects outside their thesis work are also considered. The Grants normally do not exceed $500 and usually are smaller, e.g., $100-200. Proposals may be submitted at any time, but awards are made shortly after the beginning of the fall semester, according to the availability of funds.

Please reference your department-level page for opportunities:
These programs typically recur annually or once every two years; only a limited number of Lehigh applicants may submit proposals each year.
