The School of Graduate Studies announces a new research grant program to support the thesis and dissertation research of doctoral and master’s students. The new program allows for students to request up to $7,500.
This new program is a departure from previous programs the Graduate School has supported.
“We asked faculty, students and staff where we could have the greatest impact and how we could help the University attain its strategic goals,” said Denis Medeiros, dean of the School of Graduate Studies. “A University goal is the promotion of research and economic development, and that says it all. Graduate education and research go hand in hand, and we chose this as our investment in UMKC’s future.”
The grant program will result in approximately 45 grant awards after applications have gone through a faculty review process. Deadline for applications is February 3, 2014. Details on the program can be found on the School of Graduate Studies website. Other award competitions are also listed.
