US Army Ret. Lt. Col. Cornelius W. Barton
Military Project Grant
An award of $500 is presented in memory of the late Cornelius W. Barton for a graduate student (MA, MS, or PhD) conducting research on any topic pertaining to military history or military archaeology. Mr. Barton served in the Army and had a very keen interest in archeology and history his entire life. His family has donated the money for this grant in his memory with the hope of fostering the same love of history in others. The purpose of the grant is to assist a student in advancing their research project and can be used for any justifiable expense (for example, but not limited to: equipment acquisitions, analysis costs, software purchases, or to help defray the costs of fieldwork). One grant will be awarded annually on a competitive basis and will be administered by the Battlefield Restoration and Archaeological Volunteer Organization (BRAVO).
- Research proposal, no more than three pages long, that describes the research, its potential contributions to military history or archaeology, and a justification of how the funds will be used. Maps, graphics, etc. may be additionally attached.
- Curriculum vitae.
- Two letters of support, including one from the student's advisor that indicates the expected date of completion of the project and that the student is in good standing with the department.
- A letter is requested at the completion of the project, updating BRAVO on how the money was used to benefit the project.
