Internal Funding

See more information about our Paul A. Olson Travel awards, and the Dissertation Scholarship available on this page.

Also, UNL offers a Warren and Edith Day Dissertation Travel Awards. They also annually offer Presidential, Fling, and Dean's Fellowships.

The UNL Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program is a member of the Newberry Library Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium. This enables some of our students to use Consortium funding to attend scholarly programs and do research. This Consortium also gives students the opportunity to get funding for programming or advanced research at the Folger Shakespeare Library.


You can also fund your graduate education and many times get good preparation for the teaching, research, and administrative work found in academia, or even alt-ac employment in publishing or museums through paid work or volunteer opportunities found on the UNL campus or in the Lincoln or Omaha area. See our "Employment" page.
