AGEP-T FRAME Research Grants

Cindy Research Grant

AGEP-T FRAME Scholars are eligible to apply for up to $3,000 in competitive research grant funding to cover research-related expenses. Priority will be given to advanced doctoral students and the granting of funds is based on both academic rigor and the involved research. AGEP-T FRAME Research Grant funding is strictly supplementary and is not intended as a permanent funding source of the FRAME program.

The following types of funding are being offered:

Research Grant: Funding for research being tied to a specific, detailed project that is anticipated to serve as part of your dissertation/thesis/final research project. Research can be exploratory in nature but must be connected to your current plans for thesis and dissertation work.

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.
