Research Grant Proposals

EDGE fellows are eligible to apply for research support. The specific focus of the EDGE funding program is to support EDGE students in making successful progress on their dissertation research. The following are some of the categories for which research funds can be used:

  • Special project costs such as the purchase of datasets, production of questionnaires, and running surveys
  • Human subject costs
  • Materials and equipment necessary for experiments or computer modeling
  • Fees to participate in special workshops or seminars directly related to the dissertation
  • Travel explicitly related to dissertation project activities (i.e. visiting off-campus archives)
  • Travel to meetings or professional conferences at which the student will present a paper
  • Other un-funded activities directly related to the dissertation

Research requests are reviewed at the end of each academic quarter. 

  • EDGE fellows may apply here.
