Stuart Curran Fund

Stuart Curran Fund for Graduate Student Travel


Students may apply to the Curran Fund to pay for any form of graduate research, including research trips and conference participation.  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.  The fund exists thanks to the generosity of our dear colleague Stuart Curran who first started his tenure in the English Department in 1974.  The fund honors Professor Curran's deep commitment to stimulating and guiding graduate student research.


Each student may apply for funding only once each year.

  • No student will receive more than $500.
  • The request form must be completed and turned in to Elizabeth Lunger BEFORE the trip.
  • After the trip, students must submit all itemized receipts via the Concur system.
