Graduate Research Development Grants

Grant Recipient Requirements

All Research Development Grant applications will be reviewed by the selection committee 5–10 business days after the cycle deadline. All applicants will receive an email announcement 1 business day following the selection of the awarded applications by the committee. All recipients, project descriptions and funding amounts may be posted at the completion of each funding cycle.

Awarded applicants will need to submit the following items to Drew Lundholm in the Graduate Studies office to receive funds and fulfill the requirements of the awarded grant.

  1. * A completed reimbursement form:  Grant recipients will be issued a reimbursement after all receipts and paperwork are received and reconciled against the grant award and budget. A blank reimbursement form, along with a completed instructional form, will be included in the announcement email to selected applicants.  All reimbursements must be submitted within 6 months of the award announcement.
  2. A one-page summary report:  The summary report is due no later than 6 months after receiving the selection announcement email.   Reports should outline the results or progress of your proposed work.  Please include any images of your work or of travel destinations as a part of your summary.
