As a service to the graduate and professional students we serve, the Graduate and Professional Student Council (GPSC) annually gives out research awards to deserving graduate and professional students to aid in their particular field of study. Awards can be used for travel to support research, to purchase equipment and supplies, or any combination thereof. Award applications are initially vetted by an independent panel of graduate and professional students.
For the 2018 Research Awards, GPSC will accept and review both INDIVIDUAL & GROUP applications.
Applicants must complete the online application, submit a 1-2 page proposal summarizing their project, an itemized budget report detailing how award funds will be used, and include a letter of support from a faculty member in their department.
The GPSC 2018 Research Awards Ceremony will be held at 7 p.m. on May 1st, 2018 at the Hall of Presidents located on the first floor of Morris Library. Please join GPSC as we celebrate this year’s award recipients. Dr. Juliane P. Wallace, Interim Associate Dean/Director of the SIUC Graduate School, will be conducting the medal ceremony. This event is free and open to the public.
