Program Overview: The Graduate Student Association offers this merit-based grant program allowing graduate students the opportunity to compete for monetary support for their research and scholarly projects. It is our goal to provide funding opportunities that encompass a wide range of scholarly activities of graduate students from a breadth of disciplines. The Graduate Student Association has a pool of $25,000 for grant funding, and will award as many grants as possible, up to $2,500 per student. A panel of judges from multiple academic departments will evaluate the grant proposals.
