Please see your faculty research advisor right away and start on your applications for several grants-in-aid, which are all due on-line Monday, September 26, 2016. All applications must be read by and supported by a letter from your research faculty advisor.

Maximum award is $1,000, for expenditures incurred since May 9, 2016 or anticipated for projects planned for current or planned research projects.

(2) Travel grants: Proposals will be considered for expenses associated with presentation of research at conferences (e.g., flight, hotel, poster preparation costs) up to $500. Please submit your application here: https://uic.academicworks.com/opportunities/2276
Whether you are conducting scientific experiments, lab research, or surveys, whether you are analyzing data from field work such as participant observation or in-depth interviews, creating a set for a play, designing a building, or exploring historical archives, you may apply for funding to support your research, attend professional conferences, pay for your Research Forum poster, and so on.
Please read the award announcements carefully, and follow instructions for submission of rationale and methods, detailed budget and budget justification, letter of support, and so on. Submit your completed online application--include support letter--by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, September 26, 2016. The online system will be terminated at that time and no late applications will be accepted.
