Application Components

A complete application should include the following materials in this order:

1. Cover Sheet (including name and contact information). Please indicate if you would like to be considered for both cash and tuition awards or for only one of these (many students on graduate assistantships already have tuition remission in addition to their stipend; NCI tuition awards are ideal for those who do not already have full tuition remission through a graduate assistantship or other graduate awards).

2. Project Summary (250 words maximum).

3. Project Narrative (1,000 words maximum, double-spaced, 12-point font). The Project Narrative must describe the specific activity for which funding is being sought and include the following:

  • Provide a general project overview and timetable for completion within one academic year.
  • Explain how the proposed project will contribute to the field of translation and interpreting studies and advance the mission and goals of NCI. For those students enrolled in degrees not clearly related to translation and interpreting, the application must indicate how the project is relevant to their area of specialization/discipline as well as translation studies.
  • Describe how the proposed work offers measureable outcomes for a phase of a larger project/grant application.
  • Describe the applicant’s qualifications to complete the proposed project and how activities will advance the applicant’s broader research agenda, intellectual development, or academic career.

4. Curriculum Vitae (two pages maximum): CVs should note any scholarly or creative achievements pertinent to the project.

5. Letter of Support: One letter of support from the applicant’s major advisor or someone familiar with the applicant’s work.
