 Student Research Awards & Graduate Student Grant Writing Program


CRF recognizes the importance of supporting family researchers at all stages of their careers. Student Research Awards recognize outstanding student research in the many fields that encompass family studies.  Student Travel Awards support students who travel to conferences to present their research on current issues families face. Check back in Spring 2021 for application information. 

The Graduate Grant Writing Program developed by CRF is designed to facilitate and support graduate students conducting family research in the development of successful graduate fellowship applications. Students are given the opportunity to present their research questions, methods and findings to fellow recipients and CRF faculty. Family research is broadly defined and encompasses all disciplines. Students from all programs and departments are eligible to apply and representation across disciplines is desired.
