The purpose of the award is to stimulate high-quality, primary research by undergraduates in the humanities and social sciences--particularly government, politics and political history, social and religious history, and literature. It also encourages exploration of the historical and cultural heritage of the Rochester and Monroe County area.
The award allocates up to $600 per winner for the acquisition of books and documents, research-related travel, and other research expenses.
The Barth-Crapsey awards are funded through a gift to the University from Rochester resident Arthur Crapsey and his late wife, Class of 1940 alumna Jean Barth Crapsey.
