Talk to your Master. Most residential colleges have pockets of money, both in the form of formal grants
(see below) and in terms of discretionary funds.

• Examples of formal grants: Bruce Babcock Saybrook College Travel Research Fellowship; Pierson
Master’s Summer Traveling Research Fellowship, Bergin Fellowship (TD underclassmen)
