Grants have been reviewed, but we are waiting on an order of blank checks so our treasurer can print them. We will send out an email when the grants they are available to be picked up.
Please do not attempt to pick them up before we notify you.
The Spring 2013 deadline for grant applications is 4:00 pm on February 8th, 2013.
Detailed instructions for preparing your grant for the spring 2013 grants cycle can be found in the following file: Spring 2013 Grants Instructions. A workshop will be held on January 25th from 12-1 in the Stodder Hall Graduate Center to help you prepare your grant for and understand the GSG grants process.
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 board meetings during the current and previous semesters to qualify for funding. To find out the name of the representative of your department please refer to the 2012 Fall Representative Attendance on our meetings page.
Contact the GSG Grants Officer with any questions. Only answers from the GSG Grants Officer can be construed as a binding determination.
