Doctoral Student Research Grant Program

January 31 is the application deadline for the Doctoral Student Research Grant (DSRG), which provides up to $1,500 in funding for research-related travel, conference-related travel (as well as housing and registration), compensation of research subjects — and more.

The DSRG program funds doctoral students currently in  their second through sixth year — except those who have received the latest DSRG (Round 10). This will be Round 11.

Required: a proposal and budget submitted through an online application form; and one letter of support from a faculty mentor.  Decisions on funding (whether to fund and how much) are made by the faculty in your program.
