Thanks to a generous gift from the Redekop family, the Committee on Environment, Geography and Urbanization (CEGU) offers funding awards for Ph.D. research projects engaged with CEGU themes, including socio-environmental studies, urban environmental studies, energy histories and geographies, environmental humanities, and more. University of Chicago Ph.D. students across all disciplines can apply for funding up to $5,000 per person. Grants can be used to cover field work related expenses including travel costs, access to archival or digital materials, interview compensations, and other research-related expenses. Preference will be given to students who are pursuing the CEGU Doctoral Certificate, and to those who have not previously received funding.
