Graduate Student Research Grant Program

The Office of University Graduate Studies sponsors a competitive research grant program to financially assist students with thesis and other research studies. With funding support from the respective Deans and Office of the Provost/Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, the Graduate Student Research Grant Program makes awards during the Fall and Spring semesters for the completion of approved projects. Funding is limited, and not all proposals are funded in this competitive program.

Below is a sampling of projects funded in recent semesters. When completed, many of these research studies are published in scholarly journals and presented at professional meetings. Contact your Graduate Program Director/Advisor for more information about this program.
