Graduate Research Fund

The graduate research fund was created to encourage and support graduate students as they undertake research and creative projects, present papers at professional meetings, and need research materials or other resources.  Because this grant is designed to provide financial support to students for scholarly activities or research related to their programs of study, it is anticipated that the awarding of this grant will enable a student to better understand the scientific process, develop better communication and analytical skills, and gain experience presenting research results at academic conferences.  The maximum grant award is $1,500. 

A proposal and application form must be submitted prior to the start of the project, presentation of the paper at a professional conference, or request for research materials.  Please review the grant application guidelines for more information.
