Phi Kappa Phi is assessing the need to provide funding to members for graduate research travel. As part of this assessment, the Society is offering graduate research grants of up to $1,500 to eligible members who are enrolled in a graduate program. These grants provide funding for travel in support of career development opportunities, such as conducting or presenting research.
“In the spirit of innovation, Phi Kappa Phi is pleased to announce the pilot of a new award, the Graduate Research Grant,” said Dr. Mary Todd, Society executive director. “Because graduate research often involves travel, whether for gathering or presenting research, we hope a limited pilot offering will identify member interest in a travel grant program.”
To be eligible to apply, applicants must be an active member of Phi Kappa Phi or have accepted membership by November 30, 2018, and currently be enrolled in a graduate program. In addition, the travel to conduct or present research must take place between January 1, 2019, and August 31, 2019. Current Phi Kappa Phi Fellows or previous Dissertation Fellows are not eligible to apply.
To apply for a graduate research grant, please complete the request form by Friday, November 30. The number of grants to be awarded is contingent upon the availability of funds and the number of applications received.
