The department has committed resources so that each student can receive $800 to support them while they complete their graduate studies. The amount is available for research or travel. The student can also split the award between research and travel in a way that best supports their needs. We encourage students to reserve some support for travel, so they can present their work at a meeting before they graduate. Students are responsible for their awards (i.e., the funds are not released to an advisor), which allows students to practice managing research funds.
Students that have their proposal accepted by their committee and on file with the department manager:
Students requesting funds before their proposal is accepted by their committee:
a. Short (2-3 sentences) description of how this work fits with your overall thesis activity (required);
