Graduate Research and Creative Opportunities Grant

Graduate research awards assist students in accomplishing the research, scholarly, or creative work required by their degree program.

Requests should be relevant to the student's research/scholarly/creative work and not already available through the department or college. Any permanent equipment acquired using award funds remains University property.

All students currently enrolled, and in good standing, in graduate programs at Western Washington University are eligible to apply for research funding.
