Alumni Grants for Graduate Research and Scholarship

The Graduate School’s Alumni Grants for Graduate Research and Scholarship (AGGRS) Program provides small grants up to $5,000 to support the research and scholarship of doctoral or terminal master’s degree candidates for their dissertations or theses.

Most grants will be made at the $2,000 or $3,000 level. Only a small number of awards will be made at the $5,000 level.

The competition is help twice each year, during autumn and spring semesters. While eligibility is tied to financial need, awards are made on the merit of the proposal, which must be for work that is essential to the dissertation or thesis.

Autumn Deadline: October 16, 2017 by 5:00pm
