Any Doctoral or Master’s student in good standing in the College of Arts and Sciences is eligible. The initiative will support proposals that contain any one of the following elements: (i) new ideas to become part of the student’s dissertation/thesis research, (ii) exploratory research, or (iii) collaborative research that will enhance the student’s scholarly experience. The maximum award-size for an individual grant is $500. For collaborative research projects involving more than one other student, the maximum award amount is $1,000. Proposals will be evaluated independently in two categories: Doctoral level and Master’s-level.

The Graduate Student Union(GSU), a representative body of graduate students from the various disciplines in the College of Arts and Sciences, is offering funding opportunities for A&S graduate students. The GSU is offering grants (maximum $100) to help A&S graduate students offset the costs of conducting research, attending conferences, and purchasing materials needed for research.
