Eleven Members of the Dartmouth Class of 2012 Receive Funding to support Senior Honors Thesis Research in Social Sciences

Article Type 

The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center provides grants twice a year of up to $1,000 for undergraduate students writing a senior honors thesis in the social sciences. For the Class of 2012, we awarded eleven students from five different departments a total of $7,497.29 in grants. 

The research projects ranged from addressing the problem of implementing public welfare systems in three Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, and Peru, to the work private American foundations did to help rebuild Western Germany after World War II.

The grant application deadlines for the graduating Class of 2013 are Friday, May 18, 2012 or Friday, October 12, 2012.
