Graduate Students  

One of the “Marks of Excellence” of UW-Eau Claire is its emphasis on student participation in scholarly and creative activity. Many funding opportunities are available to graduate students.


Apply for a Grant

 

The Center for Writing Excellence, located on the second floor of McIntyre Library, can help at any stage of your writing process, from brainstorming your project and outlining your structure to organizing your argument and polishing your claims.

 

The Graduate Student Research and Scholarly and Creative Activity Grants (GradRSCA) program is designed to support projects performed by graduate students. Students may receive up to $500 to accomplish the scholarly activity.


In addition to the GradRSCA program, students may receive funding through Faculty/Student Research Collaboration and Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (SREU) when they serve as student research mentors for undergraduates on those projects.

Graduate students also have many opportunities to present and share their scholarly projects beyond the classroom setting. Here are a few ways to go about doing so:


Present at UW-Eau Claire


Student Research Day

An annual spring event that now covers a three day period where students' work displayed on posters are presented on UW- Eau Claire Campus.  Students are able to share their research results and experiences with the campus and Eau Claire communities.

Present at Professional Meetings


Student Travel for the Presentation of Research Results

Travel awards may be made to assist students traveling to national or regional professional meetings in order to present the results of collaborative research. Students may receive up to $700 to cover travel expenses. (deadline open)

      TIP: Many professional societies offer travel funds for students (e.g., reduced conference registration fees). Check the conference/society website or contact ORSP for assistance.
