Humanities Research and Innovation Grants

The University of Rochester offers Humanities Research and Innovation Grants (HRIG) to selected incoming first-year students so that they can carry out an independent research project some time during their four years at UR. Until they declare a major, a Humanities Center mentor serves as the student's advisor. The Center offers many activities geared to undergraduate researchers to which the HRIG students are invited.

Mentors for 2018-19 include:

  • Richard Kaeuper (History)
  • Katherine Mannheimer (English)
  • Allen Topolski (Art and Art History)
