Graduate Student Research Support Award

Application and Overview

Awards will not exceed $300 for master’s students or $600 for doctoral students, and will often be less, depending on the demand. Due to limited funding availability, students who have received this award in the past are not eligible to re-apply.

Funds are intended to be for expenses associated with conducting the research. Requests for travel funding to present the findings at a professional conference will generally not be considered (students are encouraged to instead apply to the GSA Travel fund for that purpose); however, travel and conference funding requests may be considered on a competitive basis for students in gerontology, life sciences or music programs, due to the generous support of the Gary R. Janssen Fund for Graduate Student Research and Scholarship.

Recipients are required to submit a brief one-paragraph summary on the use and impact of the funds to
