The Media Studies Program will award several research grants to Pomona College students (except seniors) to cover the direct costs (e.g., travel, living expenses, equipment rental) of working on a media studies-related project, which could include a research paper, documentary film, performance, or other appropriate form of expression. The proposals will be evaluated on the originality of the research/project, its feasibility, and the clarity of the research/production plan. Grant recipients submit a written abstract for the annual September Conference Proceedings book and must make a public presentation of the results of their projects to faculty and students of the Media Studies program during the fall semester following the receipt of the grant.
The online application open and end dates will be provided to all Pomona faculty and students by email announcement as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research Program.
The number and amount of grants will vary based on number of submissions and size of budget requests.
Information about on-campus housing will be made available at the time awards are announced.
