MAE and MAWP students take notice that two different opportunities to receive research funding from DePaul have approaching deadlines. Applications for both the Graduate Research Funding (GRF) program and the Vincentian Endowment Fund Grant are due in under a month’s time.
Graduate Research Funding Program:
The college supports the research, scholarship, and creative work of graduate students through its Graduate Research Funding (GRF) program. The GRF helps defray the cost of conducting research and creative work and for presenting papers at academic conferences through a competitive process. Students can apply once in every academic year to the GRF program.
Vincentian Endowment Research Funding Program:
This endowment fund was established in 1992 by a gift from the Vincentian Fathers and Brothers who sponsor the University. The endowment thus seeks to assist the university in its developing understanding of how, as a university informed by the vision of Vincent de Paul, it is to be an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming institution which treasures its Catholic identity. This assistance will be achieved through funding grant projects that directly enhance the identity of DePaul University as a Catholic, Vincentian, and urban university with special attention to the Catholic and Vincentian aspects of this identity.
An information session on the endowment will take place Thursday Sept. 17 from 1:00-2:00 pm on the Lincoln Park Campus Student Center room 324. More information, guidelines, and application can be found here.
