The Graduate Student Research Grant was established to support graduate students engaged in independent scholarly research, scientific inquiry, inventive technology, and original artistic activity. The grants are intended to help students pay extraordinary or unusual costs incurred in research projects. The typing of theses and dissertations and project papers, as well as the purchase of supplies and equipment commonly provided by departments or by other existing grants or funds, are not considered to be unusual expenses.
WMU graduate students on the master's level and the doctoral level have two opportunities at each degree level to secure research and travel grants. These opportunities may consist of 2 research grants or 2 travel grants or a combination of 1 research grant and 1 travel grant at each degree level.
Contact Dr. Marianne Di Pierro, Director, Graduate Center for Research and Retention, with questions or concerns.
