The mission of the Doctoral Student Research Grant Program is to foster a research-oriented academic culture among Ph.D. students by: (a) providing incentives for students to model and meet, early in their careers, the requirements for succeeding in the competition for funds by clearly defining a problem, a project, and a realistic budget; (b) providing an occasion for faculty-student mentoring relationships that are oriented around the concrete problems of proposing, planning for, and executing research; and (c) furthering student professional progress by providing funds for pre-doctoral research publications, presentations, and professional networking.
For Competition #10, applicants may submit a budget between $250 and $1,500. However, keep in mind that you won’t necessarily get as much as you’ve requested.
Applications for Round #10 will be accepted between Nov. 1, 2014, and Jan. 31, 2015, with the award period lasting from June 1, 2015, to May 31, 2016.
