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 $1,500 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.

Academic Conference Fund

Presidential Research Grant recipients are eligible to receive a travel grant of up to $500 from the Graduate Student Academic Conference Fund to present their research as the primary presenter at a professional conference. This is in addition to the Presidential Research Grant award. More information on the Academic Conference Fund can be found here.
