complete their projects.

The grants will be awarded to the authors of the best MA and BA research proposals. Interested candidates are asked to submit a research proposal of about 600 words stating
1. research problem and its academic and/or cultural relevance
2. research methodology
3. research schedule
4. budget (include estimates of plane/train tickets, lodging or of the cost of specific books)
5. justification for the expense, i.e., explain why this money is needed for completing your research

The research proposals should be submitted to all three coordinators of the program: Paweł Frelik (p.frelik@uw.edu.pl), William Glass (w.glass@uw.edu.pl), and Anna Sosnowska (aksosnow1@uw.edu.pl).
