Research Grants for Graduate Students (RGGS)

Research Grants for Graduate Students (RGGS) is an SIUE Graduate School program that awards small grants on a competitive basis to support research initiated and conducted by classified graduate students to enhance their academic progress. The purpose of this program is to support the research of graduate students, particularly as it relates to their thesis or final project. Classified graduate students may submit a proposal for RGGS funding if they meet the following conditions: 1) good academic standing (3.0 GPA with at least 6 completed hours in the graduate program), and 2) enrollment in graduate-level coursework as a degree-seeking graduate student during the academic term for which they are seeking funding. Previous RGGS recipients are ineligible for a second grant. Applicants may request up to $500. See the Graduate School page on RGGS for detailed information, including the required format and length. Note that the deadlines for submitting proposals to the Biological Sciences Graduate Committee are always a week or so earlier than the Graduate School deadlines. Consult with your advisor and start work on your RGGS proposal well before the due date.
