Recruitment travel grant expanding section

Recruitment Travel Grants provide up to $500 per program for faculty and staff travel related to graduate student recruiting. Conference travel can be supported, if it includes significant recruiting activity. Applications should be submitted in far advance of the proposed travel as practical. Awards are limited to $500 per graduate program per fiscal year. 

Interdisciplinary projects grant expanding section

Interdisciplinary Projects Grants support graduate faculty, staff and students in creating new opportunities that will serve multiple graduate programs. 

Advancing graduate education grant expanding section

The Graduate Studies Office will provide summer stipends for faculty to work on the development of new graduate degree programs and certificates. The maximum award is $2,000/project per year. Individuals who have received this funding in the past are encouraged to apply for a second year of funding if their work on program development is ongoing.
