AGEP-T FRAME Funding Opportunities


The AGEP-T FRAME Program is committed to supporting our scholars by providing funding opportunities for activities related to research excellence and professional development. A call for applications will be issued bi-annually and priority deadlines established. Funding applications received after the deadline will be reviewed and considered on a continual basis, based on the funds availability.  


Types of Funding

Research Grants

FRAME Research Grant funding is a competitive program used to cover research-related expenses. The granting of funds is based on both academic rigor and the involved research. Current scholars can apply for a maximum of $3,000. The following categories of awards are being offered.

  • Research Grants: Funding for research being tied to a specific, detailed project that is anticipated to serve as part of your dissertation/thesis/final research project.
  • Technical Skill Development: Funding for activities related to developing new research skills.
  • Research Network & Collaboration: Funding for activities related to developing collaborations by spending time at another institution throughout the United States or around the world, under research advisor direction. 
  • Other Funding: We are open to considering other ideas related to research excellence. A detailed explanation is required.
