The GPSA has established a Researcher Award program which will assist students to purchase research materials, present their work at national/international conferences, and will support completion of requirements for their degree program. This award will be distributed based on the student’s level of enrollment (master’s or doctoral/professional) as well as field (STEM or non-STEM).
A total of four recipients may be awarded. Two awards at the master’s level (in a STEM and a non-STEM area) and two awards at the doctoral/professional level (in a STEM and a non-STEM area). Doctoral/professional level award winners may receive up to $4,000 in research/conference support. Master’s level award winners may receive up to $2,500 in research/conference support. Additionally, up to two honorable mentions in both category levels may receive a $500 award.
Applications will be open and accepted once per academic year.
Preference will be given to students working on research projects that will be applied to their final thesis/dissertation manuscript.
