Graduate School Seeks Applicants for Student/Faculty Research Awards

UT’s Graduate School is seeking applicant proposals for the Student/Faculty Research Awards.

Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to student-faculty pairs to support research or creative projects. The funds may be used to purchase supplies needed for research; for travel to work in other laboratories, libraries, or archives; for specialized training; or in a variety of other ways, so long as the outcome will be the professional development of the graduate student and the advancement of an identified research/creative agenda of both the student and faculty member.

The deadlines for proposals are October 28 and January 17. Applications require both a graduate student principal investigator and a faculty principal investigator and must include endorsement letters from the department as well as the college.

A subcommittee of the Graduate Council, along with the vice provost and dean of the Graduate School and a representative from the Office of Research and Engagement, will evaluate proposals and make awards.

Visit the Graduate School website for more information and detailed instructions on how to create and submit a proposal.
