rGrant Overview

The rGrant Program is designed to provide financial support for student (graduate and undergraduate) research, projects, and other scholarly endeavors—under faculty supervision—in all academic disciplines. Examples include activities such as laboratory experiments, senior projects, field studies, printing of thesis, subscription to related journals, and material to create artwork.

Funding is intended to support future and in-progress endeavors. Recipients must be enrolled as students for the duration of the program award. Once the applications have been collected the Academic Committee will review them. A notification of your status will be sent shortly after the collection, depending on the amount of applications received.

Reminder: Funding will not be allocated, however, for salaries, meals, travel, or symposia and manuscript presentations. No reimbursements for projects already completed will be given.

Guidelines for applying for the rGrant Program are as follows:

  1. Associated Students, Inc. funds will not be allocated for projects in which the student does not have a substantial and creative role.
  2. Each project shall only have one student.
  3. If at any time the project changes the student must submit a new application.
