Apply for the Graduate School's Return to Research Grants

In recognition of the significant impact COVID-19 has had on graduate student research, the Graduate School has launched the Return to Research Grant Program to help students get their dissertation research back on track. Please review the details below and encourage eligible doctoral students in your department to apply.

Return to Research Grants will provide up to $5,000 for dissertation data collection and analysis to doctoral students whose research has been interrupted, delayed, or slowed by COVID-19. Grants will provide immediate and flexible funding for dissertation research activities such as travel to research sites, archives or collections, or equipment and supplies, among other research needs. 

Doctoral students in a campus-based degree program and in good academic standing are eligible to applyStudents may NOT apply for both a Return to Research Grant and another Graduate School Grant (Predissertation, Dissertation Research, or Dissertation Fieldwork) in Spring Semester 2021.

Please note that Return to Research Grants are not intended to replace other forms of financial support available from your advisor/principal investigator, department, or school/college.

Applications for Return to Research Grants are due Monday, March 15, 2021. 

Additional details and application materials are available on the Return to Research Grants website. Contact Heidi Bauer-Clapp in the Graduate School with questions.
