The specifics of whether your proposed use of funds is covered under a GSG grant are in the GSG Standing Rules, Section V. B. GSG Research Grants. I strongly advise that you also look at the application instructions for more detailed information. Each department must have a GSG representative attend at least 75% of the GSG Senate meetings during the current and previous semesters to qualify for funding. Check the eligibility status of your department for the Spring 2015 Grants Cycle here. To find out the name of the representative of your department please refer to the 2013-2014 GSG representatives on our meetings page.

Applicants for reimbursement of expenses incurred in the semester(s) prior to the current grants cycle are required to submit an expense report with original receipts. These should be submitted before the grants application deadline.

Contact the GSG Grants Officer ( with any questions. Only answers from the GSG Grants Officer can be construed as a binding determination.
