Graduate Student Research Fund Applications Open

Graduate Student Research Fund
With the assistance of the Provost’s Office and the ISU Foundation, the College of Graduate and Professional Studies has established a Graduate Student Research Fund to support and encourage student research, creativity, and professional activity under the guidance of sponsoring faculty advisors. Graduate students in degree programs are invited to apply for funding to assist with research activities/supplies or dissemination of research through such activities as presenting at a professional conference related to a student’s enrolled program.

The priority deadline for applications is noon September 30 for Fall/Spring grants and noon February 15 for Spring/Summer grants—or the first business day thereafter.

– Any currently enrolled graduate student who is working toward a graduate degree may apply.
Full-time faculty who are simultaneously enrolled in a graduate program may not apply. Students may submit only one request per semester. Students may receive only one award per academic year. All proposed travel must occur prior to the student’s date of commencement.
