American Dream Grant

The American Dream Summer Grant Program, sponsored by the Prochaska Family, supports research or creative projects on topics exploring the American Dream. 

Possible projects might include studies of immigration to the United States, the development of American social ideals, changes in real and perceived social mobility in contemporary American society, and the ways in which artists and novelists have envisioned America. The fund is also interested in supporting projects that analyze how Americans and American ideals are understood outside the United States, and how global trends, in turn, shape American society. Applicants should make the connection between their project and the American Dream overt in the abstract and introduction of their application.

Max Award: $4,500

Deadline:  April 9, 2022
