Through this RFA, Graduate Student Council (GSC) solicits applications from currently enrolled graduate students in any discipline. GSC Research Grants are funded by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) and the Graduate School (hereafter, “the Sponsors”) to enable graduate students to conduct research and innovation projects that would not be possible with departmental funds alone.
Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards
The Sponsors will award up to twenty grants of up to $1,000 each in April 2017 for projects to be conducted between May 2017 and June 2018. Applications requesting more than $1,000 will returned without review, as will those with total project costs exceeding $1,000 that fail to list the committed sources (departmental, personnel, etc.) of funding for costs above the $1,000 grant.
Principal Investigator (PI) Eligibility
UM (Oxford) graduate students from any discipline that conducts research or innovation activities are eligible to apply, as long as they are enrolled in good standing in their respective programs, and are planning to be enrolled in the Fall 2016 semester. A workshop on the GSC Grant Program will be offered from 5:15 pm to 6pm, February 20, in Coulter 211 (sign up at http://www.research.olemiss.edu/upcoming-presentations). Previous recipients of the GSC grant may apply, but priority may be given to applicants who have never received a GSC grant. The graduate student/applicant will be the Principal Investigator on the project. No more than one graduate student may serve as a PI per application/award, and each graduate student may submit only one application.
