One of the most important services the GPSA offers for UNLV graduate and professional students is the allocation of funds for graduate and professional research, conference/event travel, and other scholarly activities. This service is intended to provide support for projects that directly affect a student's degree program as well as make a contribution to the scholar's field.
Applicants are eligible for up to 3 research and/or travel sponsorship awards per academic year (fall to summer semester) and may submit only one application for each sponsorship cycle.
The annual maximum amount any student may be awarded is $1,250.00.
Applicants should understand that this is a competitive application process. Students submitting funding requests should stringently follow the application components to ensure equitable footing. Incomplete or erroneously compiled applications will automatically be disqualified from the request pool. No incomplete applications will be accepted.
Notification letters for all sponsorship applications, both regular cycle and emergency, will be sent out within 4-5 weeks after submission deadline. No information regarding an application's status is available before that date. We thank you in advance for your patience.
For more information please contact Sidath Kapukotuwa, GPSA Vice President and Chair of the Sponsorship Committee, and/or GPSA Manager.
