Graduate Research Funding

Limited grants are available from the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School to support graduate student research expenses.  When submitting the application, please include a detailed statement explaining the project (two pages maximum) and a letter of support from your faculty mentor. Please note that these funds are for reimbursement purposes only and money will not be given out upfront, but only after receipts have been submitted.

The application must be submitted prior to the start of the research.  Students will not be reimbursed for subjects and labor costs.  Applicants should be aware that reimbursements for research must follow university policies and procedures and current COVID restrictions.

These grants are made possible through funds donated to the Arts and Sciences Academic Excellence Funds.  Students may be asked to present their research or meet with donors on selected occasions.
