Apply for a Graduate Research Grant for your research and capstone projects, which is jointly offered by The Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies, the Institute of Transportation Studies, the Luskin Center for Innovation, and the Edward Hildebrand Canadian Studies Program.
This program provides an opportunity for students to receive financial support for their theses, Applied Policy Projects, Applied Planning Research Projects, or other capstone projects specific to their department. The program offers financial support layout and design support, and assistance with publicity and distribution for your project findings.
Awards may include in-kind time provided by center staff (for purposes of layout and publicity assistance) to financial resources of up to $5,000, or some combination of both.
Eligible and Ineligible Expenses:
Graduate Research Grants may be used to cover direct costs associated with research, specifically data acquisition, software, production of final report, and undergraduate research assistance. The grants will not cover graduate student salaries, tuition remission, meals, or gift cards. The centers will consider requests for travel expenses only if travel is absolutely necessary for primary data collection purposes and if this need is well described in the application. Stipends are available for Institute of Transportation Studies projects that meet certain thematic goals. Expenses need to be pre-approved before seeking reimbursement.
