Increased Funding for GLRC Student Grants

by Great Lakes Research Center

The Great Lakes Research Center (GLRC) is thrilled to announce an increase in student travel and research funding starting today (Aug. 14). These grants are a strategic investment in advancing science, increasing collaboration between student and advisor, and communicating the exciting research being conducted by GLRC faculty members and student awardees.

  • GLRC Student Travel Grants
    GLRC Student Travel Grant awards will increase to a maximum of $1,000 per recipient for a podium presentation, and $750 for a poster presentation, at a scientific conference, meeting or workshop. The presentations must highlight GLRC-affiliated research developed by students working with their GLRC member advisor.

    GLRC Student Travel Grant applications are accepted anytime and reviewed on the last Friday of each month. Students are eligible for one grant per degree. Applications must be submitted at least two weeks in advance of the travel. A GLRC acknowledgment should be included on the poster or presentation. The presentation/poster may be displayed on the electronic showcase in the GLRC or posted to social media.
  • GLRC Student Research Grants
    GLRC Student Research Grant awards will increase to a maximum of $1,000 per recipient. The GLRC Student Research Grants are intended to provide undergraduate and graduate students with GLRC member advisors with an opportunity to gain experience in writing competitive grants, and to perform research they would not be able to attempt due to funding limitations. The grants are also meant to provide seed research data for advisors to use in pursuing externally funded research support.

    GLRC Student Research Grant applications are accepted three times a year — Nov. 1, March 1 and July 1. A student is eligible to receive a maximum of one research grant per academic year. Master’s and undergraduate students are eligible for one award during their degree program. Ph.D. students are eligible for up to two awards during their degree program. A final report is due within 30 days of the grant end date, including information on the next steps for the GLRC-affiliated advisor in obtaining external funding for this research.

    Funded students are expected to participate/volunteer for at least one GLRC activity during the grant period.
