CAS Graduate Student Research Grants

We are pleased to announce that in the 2017-18 academic year, the College of Arts and Sciences will award approximately 25 grants of up to $1,500 to support graduate student research. Research activities in all disciplines and of many kinds are eligible for support. For example, successfule proposals might request funds for:
  • Access to archival materials;
  • Travel to and accommodation at external research sites;
  • Data collection costs;
  • Equipment or software necessary for a research project;
  • Training in a new approach or technique allowing for expansion of your research program
Priority will be given to student-led projects and to projects without other sources of funding. Please note that these research grants will not be allocated to support conference funding/travel. Within 12 months of the award, all successful applicants will be asked to submit a final report.
There will be two award cycles. Approximately half of the grants will be awarded in Fall 2017 and half in Spring 2018. The deadline for the Fall cycle is Monday, September 25th at 5 p.m. The deadline for the Spring cycle is Monday, January 29th at 5 p.m.


Congratulations to the Recipients of the Fall 2017 CAS Graduate Student Research Grants!
