Graduate Student Research Grants

The goal of the Research Project Grant program is to fund graduate student research projects. These grants support student initiatives in all disciplines by covering up to $1,000 of the expenses associated with the student's research project.  Students are encouraged to work with their faculty advisor/ research mentor to ensure they are submitting a competitive proposal.
