Presidential Research Grants

Grants for Graduate students

Presidential Research Grants are intended as a one-time award during a graduate student’s GVSU academic career.

Grant awards of up to $1,000 are available to support the research projects of graduate students.  Applicants must be degree seeking and in good academic standing.  The research must be tied to completion of some aspect of the applicant’s graduate degree.  Typically, these grants are intended to support research undertaken for purposes of a thesis, dissertation, or final scholarly project.  Graduate students may receive one Presidential Research Grant during completion of a degree program. Awardees are not eligible to reapply.
