Research Grants and Fellowships
Dissertation Travel Grants:
Doctoral students may apply for these grants to subsidize travel and other costs associated with dissertation research, whether for exploring a potential dissertation topic, conducting dissertation research, or making a return trip to gather additional data. Competitions are held during the fall and spring semesters. Further information is available in the Graduate Studies Office.
Through a combination of Graduate College and departmental support, partial reimbursement for expenses connected with travel to conferences to present papers is available. Competitions are held during the fall and spring semester. Stipends are dependent upon the student’s expenses and the availability of funds. Further information and applications for conference travel reimbursement are available in the Graduate Studies Office.
PhD candidates are eligible to apply for University and Departmental fellowships and Release Time fellowships. The competition is held in the spring for the coming academic year, and winners are usually announced in late March or April. More information on how to apply for such internal fellowships is available in the Graduate Studies Office.
