Graduate Thesis/Dissertation Research Grant Announcement for Spring 2018 – Due Oct. 27

I am pleased to announce the Graduate Thesis/Dissertation Research Grant for Spring 2018! The purpose of the Graduate Thesis/Dissertation Grant Program is to support the scholarly research of graduate students at Northeastern University. This grant program is a collaboration among the Office of the Provost for Research and Graduate Education, the Graduate Student Government, and the individual colleges. It is designed to help full-time graduate students meet the costs associated with completing their thesis or dissertation research, to improve the quality and impact of their research, and/or to support research endeavors intellectually independent of the adviser.

Applicants for the thesis/dissertation research awards must be full-time students in good academic standing. Master’s students or doctoral students who have not yet achieved doctoral candidacy are eligible to apply up to $1,500. Students who have completed required program course work & exams and have achieved doctoral candidacy at the time of application are eligible to apply for up to $3,000. Students enrolled in programs without dissertation/thesis requirements for graduation are not eligible (i.e. certificate programs, PSM programs, CPS).

The award period is one year from when funds are made available.

The deadline for applications is October 27th, 2017 at 5:00pm.

More information can be found on our Graduate Thesis Research Grant website.
